I'm new here and I don't have any African hunting knowledge to share, but I have done some African themed art over the years. Here are a few examples of my work.

Cape buffalo

Here's another little project that I did a couple of years ago. This was a fun project, but it has an unfortunate tendancy to bring out a lot of political comments. View attachment 57941

I can see that. :E Shocked: Was about to say something but...........

Again great work.

Thank you. I really like working with the buffalo horn, but collectors definitely prefer ivory. This is Asian water buffalo, but Cape Buffalo works very well too, when I can get my hands on it.

Very welcome.

And I was kinda thinking the same thing about the horn. That I'd love to have something like that done out of the horn of a buff I shot, but when would I not keep at least the horn?

What a problem to have. :)

Yup, there are a few available on Ebay but the cost is considerably higher than for water buffalo horn and in the end they look exactly the same.

Ok, that's really nice.

As cool as the guns are I would prefer something I could use and the watch I'd wear, whereas the pistol id be afraid to carry. Everyday ivory from the watch!

I agree. The guns had such a perfect finish I'd be afraid to get them dirty. The watches on the other hand are still one of a kind, and actually affordable.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
