    I ended up welding the refurbished lawn mower blade inside a piece of threaded end steel pipe which was laying around which was perfect length and already pre made .
    Wrapped leather around it, and the finger guard is a brass plumbing nut off another piece of brass threaded plumbing pipe .
    Same on bottom although I'll look out for an alternate pommel in the future.

    As its coming along some more finishing to do and I've found a mobile knife sharpener guy says he charges 5$ a blade and will put the grind on the other knife blank thats planned next.
    So this one will go too and will see what grind can be put on.
    Its a functional knife now , very simply made , should be strong , not too pretty should do the job fine if it comes to it.

    Point of balance in handle for now about an inch behind finger guard.
