Varnish stripper, TSP, cabinet scrapers and lots of steel wool.
Fine piece of work with a lot of details. With a pocket knife, I'd be afraid of going too deep and roughing up that detail. Dremel or other sanding and it's going to wash out and lose that detail. That would also open many opportunities to gouge and ruin the work.
