Default Rib Art

I get a kick out how beautiful some Damascus ribs are. None of this recent batch of barrels to refinish were Parkers unfortunately, but I wanted to show the quality original workmanship revealed by the refinish.

Very nice. I think the chain pattern is one of the nicest but all of the above are beautiful.

Breck refinished this set of 12 gauge, 1-frame Bernard barrels for me a few months ago. I’m very pleased with the result and the rib is outstanding!

The rib is almost irridescent as it reflects light differently as I change the angle I’m holding it at.
