TEXTURED: A unique and varying finish with a tactile surface applied through various techniques, both by hand and with machinery.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
REVOLVER: A safety that conceals the point of a pin and keeps it in place with a revolving lever mechanism.
