Knife Embellishments

Decorations of most any form fit under “knife embellishments,” including but not limited to black and white or color scrimshaw, carving/sculpting, engraving (including gold inlay), filework, inlaid gemstones, wire-inlaid handles, etc. Decorations in similar or dissimilar forms also may spill over onto the sheath accompanying the knife. Some makers do their own embellishing, while some farm the knives/sheaths out for it.
