Default Wanted, spare Islamic style guard

I have a couple of shamshir, kilij, saif style swords and blades, nice condition but missing their guards. ?Does anyone have a separate guard knocking around in the spares box that they are OK to part with?.... Or a nice tulwar hilt perhaps.

I got the Tulwar hilt.
Still looking for the kilij guard, I thought I was in luck, but the sword is a little to small for what was available. It's a late period blade and looks like this. Alternatively buy the blade off me for 200 plus shipping.

Some interest has been shown in buying the sword, but I have not quite given up hope yet, of finding a suitable guard.... I am off to an arms fair at the weekend, and if there is no luck there, then I will sell it. This does include all that is in the photo's, and as a bonus the sad sad remains of the scabbard,

Many thanks to all those who responded, I now have a guard for the sword that is sort of OK, so I will be going with that for now. I am still interested though if a better one turns up, closer to the proper pattern in a white metal alloy. Changing guards out on these types of sword is no big deal.
