Italian marquetry, a wood inlay process dating back to the fifteenth century Renaissance, is re-created in the wildlife scenes and American Indian tones of the southwest. Stan Lance, a Native American of Laguna and Yaqui descent, and Andrew Mancuso, an Oregonian with a fascination for Nordic and Celtic influences and all things Tolkien, have taken the intricacies of this art form to its limit. These two artists have been perfecting their exotic hardwood marquetry together for over 20 years. Deer design built on a 3 1/8" closed folding lockback. Nail nick opening. Genuine Torquiose inlay. Nickel Silver bolsters. Rich grain wood back handle scale. 2 3/16" stainless drop point blade.
