Manufacture of the handguard depends very much on the type of sword being made; the component parts are either cast in brass or stamped out of brass or steel sheet, chased and fettled by hand.

The flat sheet guards are dished in a special press to give them the appropriate contour before being hand formed. Whether cast or pressed, the guards are finely polished before being plated with gold, silver or nickel, as appropriate.
