Unique Carved Lurcher Antler Opinel No 12

Recommended Posts

 

28 craftsmen couldn't mount an opinel in antler.

It was a question rather than a statement.

 

To clarify i estimate / project manage for a building contractor. Their skilled labor-joiners, masons, decorators etc etc are reffed to as "craftsmen" for charge out rates.

I understand you now pal :thumbs:

what do you carve them with griff? a dremmel type thing or one of them proper carving machine things? (been thinking of getting one of them for while lol)

Yes that type of thing, think it is called a "rotozip" i use for roughing it out and a smaller no name 12v engraver for the detail. Use carbide burs in both. A small sharp wood chisel for fine detail.

Stunning workmanship. It's a funny old world: people will happily pay £200 for a special night out, yet crib at paying a master craftsman for the hours he has spent creating a unique and beautiful ... and useful ... item.

Tell you what mate. you make a small stainless blade non locking folder with an interesting handle for £100 or so and I`ll buy the first one. No questions or haggles, I`ll take it just to get the ball rolling. Hows that for a deal ? you provide and I``ll pay.

 

You have the talent and I`ll have the cash.

Opinel do stainless blades. Do you class them as non lockers?

      FOR SALE: 
      Weihrauch HW95K .177 in immaculate condition. I bought this rifle for my Son's birthday in summer however since then we have got a rimfire and it has not been touched. I have not modified or dismantled the gun at all. I have maintained in with the appropriate cleaners and pull through and it has been stored well. 
      In addition to the rifle I include some 1" scope mounts/rings, they aren't any fancy brand but they did the trick with the Hawke 3-9x50 I had on the rifle. 
      Finally I include a nearly full tin of H&N FTT's which in my experience the rifle loves as well as a pull through. 
      I'd like £220 for the lot. I'm Located near Malton in North Yorkshire however I'm willing to travel a short distance to meet a buyer if it helps. 
      PM me if interested, thanks.
