I have several luthier built instruments where the rosette is not even close to being this perfect. Beautifully done and very tasteful.
Very nice. The patina is looking good.Wide awake, it's day 5, nothing on the teevee, so I monkeyed around with some tabletop shots. One of my traditional pocket knives I use mostly for slicing fruit. For those interested, it's a Case Mini Copperlock with chrome vanadium blade and jigged dark red bone scales. The patina on the blade is still developing, changes a bit each time I use it and wipe it down.
