Just finishing this up for a friend who's a classical violin player. 1095, buffalo horn spacers attached with blind pins, bog oak and poplar burl:

I like it, a sharp looking package. Do the holes in the choil area have a function?

Same here!

 

I was also wondering about the holes and the notches right under them. Or are they just for looks?

It's Baroque. Typical of the times, masks were worn to costume balls that simply went around the eyes and over the nose. :ph34r: :P

 

Just a hint of file work at the front of the horn bolsters and along the spine. Goes well with the choil decoration.

Today I sharpened the blade and added a copper suspension ring and belt loop to the sheath. The Spanish notch is just a decorative design element. The filework also extends right round the tang, which is tapered in two planes.

That's amazing,   I have to ask because I can't see it clearly and I'm so new to this still.   Do you epoxy around the file work on the tang or do you use a spacer of some kind to fill it in?
