As the other reviews attest to, this is a beautiful piece of brass precision magic. I’ve found the routine can be done following the explained rock to gold direction except using the prop opposite than what’s explained in the description sheet which simplifies the method. In other words mine is examined at the beginning instead of the end, either way it’s still examined and no pocket work is necessary. It is so versatile and attractive it’s well worth the price. Other companies can claim what they want but Viking beats them all in brass precision and quality.
