Aside from their often colorful approach to shaping, one of the things that has long stood out about Ser Jacopos are their mounts. Whether rendered in silver, briar, or horn, you can expect nice work. In this case their attention to detail is displayed in how they managed the gap between the faces of the briar mount and the stem itself. The gap itself was a design decision, but while others might have left it at simply having a longer tenon, Ser Jacopo turned a second briar accent to fit over the tenon-base and maintain visual continuity with the mount - even though 9/10ths of the thing would be hidden any time the stem was in place.
