Once you have straightened the wire platter it to about 1-2 mm thickness depending on how thick you want it make Shute it is still straight and is evenly flattened except for about 1 in on 1 end.
Step 4: Hand Guard
To make the hand guard take a piece of wire and cut it at a length of about 2 in. Bend it in half and slide it over the non flattened part of the longer piece of wire. Flatten the to be handle guard so that it is almost right around the other piece of wire.
