    I got to hand it to you Pierre, you are not afraid to use interesting materials. It looks like the feel in hand would be great.
    One suggestion may be to go finer in the sanding on the guard. You don't have to remove tons more material, only get the scratches out from the previous grit. Once you've made to around 600 grit everything should be popping.
    Keep it up!
