That is an exquisite piece of work. May I ask how you did the inlay?

Sorry for the slow reply :)

When inlaying a leaf for example, the leaf shape is cut out of the steel. The edges are then undercut, the base is crosshatched in a certain way to cause tiny "teeth".

The leaf is cut out of gold etc, and beaten in, the undercut holds the outer edge and the centre of the leaf is held by the "teeth."
