[is it the same as pictured here??the point seems different on the one photo?]

Those last 2 photos look to be of Finnish knives. These knives are just great, practical yet beautiful. I guess the guy is a Samen / Lapplander, earmarking his reindeer?

Unlike the rest of the appliances for anything else in the world, the gear of a traditional African hunting safari has not changed much in the last almost hundred years

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
