Hi folks,

I haven't posted here for a while, as I've been a bit busy of late!

I started investigating firearms engraving a few years back, being lucky enough to get some initial direction from one of the very best engravers in the world. Within a short space of time I also discovered scrimshaw and was soon seduced to the 'dark side'! Big Grin
Since that day, I have been producing scrimshaw, embellishing everything from pistol grips to knife scales.

I'll have a stand at the UK knife show this year, where I'll be demonstrating some of the techniques, so please do drop by and say hello if you're in the area!

Although I am in no way a knife maker, I've always had a desire to give it a go!
So, here's my first attempt...



Of course, then it looked a bit naked... Roll Eyes



And now... it just looks nude! Big Grin



All the best,

Artemis.

Great work! I like the mosiac pins & file work. What is the handle material? Most folks won't know the difference between naked & nude. Unless they have some background in art. Wink

Try to look unimportant. Your enemy might be low on ammo.

Beautiful work but a bit too homo-erotic for my taste.

Artemis - lady of the hunt!!! Big Grin

OK ok, so here's one for the guys then...

Apologies for photos... one day I will learn to use my camera properly!

I'm hoping that as this is art, it doesn't break any forum rules.







And then both...

Nice Medusa.

When considering US based operations of guides/outfitters, check and see if they are NRA members. If not, why support someone who doesn't support us? Consider spending your money elsewhere.

NEVER, EVER book a hunt with BLAIR WORLDWIDE HUNTING or JEFF BLAIR.

I have come to understand that in hunting, the goal is not the goal but the process.
