I have an Aegislash with 5IVs in HP, Defense, Sp. defence, Sp. attack and Speed and say I have a Pokemon of the same egg-group with a power bracer. If the Aegislash holds a destiny knot and the other Pokemon holds the power bracer, does that guarantee the chances of a 6IV Honedge?

No. The Power Bracer takes up one of the guaranteed 5IVs passed through Destiny Knot. All it does is ensure that the Attack IV will be passed.

From Pokémon X and Y onward, if at least one parent holds a Destiny Knot, the baby will inherit five IVs instead of three.
This can be combined with an EV-enhancing item to ensure that one desired IV is always inherited; however, the offspring will still inherit only a total of five IVs from its parents (the EV-enhancing item simply guarantees which IV will be transferred for one of the five that the Destiny Knot allows).
