Hello Jens,

From the mechanical point of view, the sideguards don't need to be particularly thick and strong to serve their purpose well. What is of critical importance for maintainig the integrity and functionality of the Katar are the joints between the grip and the side guards, and these are more dependent on the solidity of the transverse grip bars.

Regards,

Marius
