Knife Engraving – Mother of Pearl Russ Kommer Custom
This custom knife engraving was done for a collector who asked me to come up with a design to accent the Mother of Pearl in the center of the stainless steel bolster. Typical scroll designs did not seem to work and so I came up with a simple but I think elegant sunburst design that leaves the Pearl as the main focus. This is a very special knife that features Musk Ox scales and high quality damascus steel.
Here is a close up progress picture of the hand engraved cuts.
