FWIW, diamond knurling looks like this:

The diamonds are turned effectively 45° to the way yours are shown.

How on earth have you done that?! You’ve even got it to blend/fade into the main body like it does in real life.

Michael, I’ll probably need to make a tutorial to show how. It isn’t very difficult to do the part where the knurling runs out.

Michael, if you are interested, I’ll send you a little thing I prepared on how I modeled the knurling. There doesn’t appear to be any other interest, though.
