Hand Engraved Cold Steel Espada XL Knife / Deep Relief Style
I was commissioned to engrave this beautiful Cold Steel Espada XL folding knife by Lynn Thompson, President of Cold Steel Knives. I decided to give this knife a “split personality” with classic scroll engraving on the top side and a more contemporary design in the back. The Hand Engraving is deep relief style where the background is removed and stippled (textured) which gives the engraving a rich, 3 dimensional look and feel. This is the most time intensive type of hand engraving but I think it is time well spent considering the luxurious look and feel.
