Al Buck revolutionized the knife industry in 1964 with the infamous Model 110 Folding Hunter. The company's innovative history and attention to quality have made for many great collectible knives.

They make tools specifically for that. This is an 1/8" Diamond Point Stipple Tool and costs about $20. I'm assuming you could do much the same thing with different sized center punches. Practice on a scrap piece to get the hang of it and the outcome you're looking for. Good luck.

Do you mean something like this? If so, this was done by Muskrat Man. A member here.

Yeh that's exactly what I mean Guys . I assume with that diamond tip punch you are using a hammer to do each separate stipple , is that how Muskrat done his ?
I was thinking about using the various tips on a Dremel tool ( anyone ? )
Thanks all

I don't know how Muskrat Man did his but he is approachable.
