I was recently commissioned to make a knife with micro-mosaic scales. Having never made a knife, we compromised and decided I would modify a knife. The knife we chose is made of damascus steel, a layering of metals for strength, durability and beauty.
I reworked the knife a bit, polishing the edges and refining the filework patterning while I had it taken apart to add on the new sterling silver scale which would hold the micro-mosaic. I replaced the scale on one side only as the customer requested a clip; it can be worn inside or outside a pocket.
