Beautiful hunter. I love the pattern on the blade. I also love the texturing on the bronze fittings. Would you share the process you used for that texturing? I would like to try and replicate on my current project if you don’t mind.

Thanks Guys

David I just use a ball burr in my pendant drill, a Dremel will do the same thing, it takes a bit of practice, watch your fingers.

Thanks for the tip Richard. I am going to try that on a throw away piece of metal and see if I can get close to those results. It looks amazing.
