The back of the concha can be finished in various ways: Lisa Smooth - Rayada Lined - Moteada Embossed - con Hierro With Brand or Initials. The perilla - pommel - is finished with the same design.
The last image is of the intricate Arabesca a detailed hand-crafted frieze design of leather over leather.
