Nicely, elegantly sculpted like a piece of art! And I love that natural patina. Much harm was done "cleaning" irons with brushes, mostly in the past, when irons like Gibeon, Canyon Diablo, Henbury, Sikhote Alin etc were much more abundantly available. Today it seems one looks differently at that aspect, fortunately.
