    Cheers Phil, as stated I used matchsticks but I'll try leather as it may last longer.

    Hi John, what you describe here is called a "frozen pommel" for some reason some pommels are locked and will not be able to remove from the tang.
    Early Alcoso army daggers are well known for their frozen pommels.

    Only way to stop the movement is to put something between the shoulders of the tang and the crossguard ( i would try a plastic handle of a spoon) it bends easily will not rust and can be placed under the leather washer.

    Good luck

    Hi Map
    Thanks for your reply.
    I used matchsticks trimed down with a knife!
    It worked a treat.
    Thanks for the idea.
    Great news. Glad it worked and that I could help. Nice thing about a match stick or toothpick is that it is a soft wood and can be easily compressed versus metal or plastic shims.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
