Fantastic, as always. The stippled collar spacer is a nice touch. I always like seeing your coined spacers but the stippled effect is a cool new addition. The rope filework on the spine is super clean. Getting both swedge bevels perfect and evenly rounded so that the filework tapers evenly down the center shows fantastic execution.
Those last two photos do it for me. Incredible filework, and then the final closeup of the end of the handle. Both just gorgeous. Since this was stabilized wood, may I ask if the finish is just sanding, some buffing and then wax? If not, would you share that info?
