Beautiful New Engraved Mediterranean Dirk With Silver Mounted Engraved Scabbard

This beautiful just finished knife from Jud's shop features a forge welded laminated blade with high carbon steel for the cutting edge, backed with low carbon steel for a tougher, more resilient blade. This tough low carbon portion of the blade also provides an excellent engraving surface.

The leather scabbard is mounted with engraved silver in the traditional style.

Latest Update on the Traveler's Pistols

The future owner of this beautiful pair of Traveler's Pistols (LoneStar!) requested a few enhancements, which have been added, and now the stain has been applied and the final process of rubbing out the finish is in process. Emma took these pictures and forwarded them to me via email since our Interior Alaska roads are too dangerous to safely make the 60 mile pilgrimage to Tenderfoot Hill over ice encrusted surfaces and back roads made nearly impassable by deep snow and ice.

Antes Rifle Finished

This beautiful Antes inspired rifle is finished and ready to ship to our good friend Wayne E.

I took a picture of the target where Jud sighted in the rifle from a rest at 25 yards. That was several days before my visit and the target is somewhat obscured by frost but it appears that all three balls hit the target at almost the same point of impact at the bullseye! A very accurate barrel, indeed!
