The name for fine gold (and silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This process, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, nearly a lost art.
