    Just a quick question for you knife makin gurus. I soldered on my guard which went well, but i found that i got quite abit of extra solder on the guard then i wanted. Now i tried using a peice of edged brass to scrap the solder of with and no luck. So it looks like i might have alot of sanding to do there. Any thoughts?

    Files and sand paper, accompanied by the appropriate application of elbow grease and profanity.

    saw what I think was a jewelers chisel or something like that for removing solder, also helps to have a solder sucker or braided wick handy to suck up excess

    Thanks for the ideas. I ended up using a soldering pen and heated up the excess until it cleared away. Had to be careful because i didnt want to heat up the solder that had fused the blade to the guard. Ended up using sand paper and file closer in. Thanks guys.
