Hot off the bench



Here are pics of a job I just finished. Corral reef theme on a Busfeild folder with sea snail inlay. Yellow inlays are 24 yellow gold and the red inlays are copper.

Most of the job was done with a lindsay palm controled airgraver and an old fashioned push graver that I pick dots with.

These are pretty much raw photos. Getting ready for Blade I did not take a bunch of time to play with the photography.

My favorite part of this whole job is the grumpy old grouper.

Ray

Love the pearl work
Very tight inlay there, I know you put some serious time into that part.

Actually Steve, Jack Busfeild did the sea snail inlays when he made the knife.

As far as how I part with them.....well a man's got to eat. That puts a guy in a spot where he has to do what he has to do

That is the expression groupers have after they break me off on the shelf of Amelia Island. Outstanding work Ray.

Grumpy or not, they make a hell of a sandwich. Best ones I've had are at the Pirates Cove Marina at J.Michaels in Panama City Beach , FL.

Ray, I reckon this is coming with you to Blade, got any castings?

Bee-U-Tee-Ful Ray! Everything about the knife, and the engraving, is just superb. If it were in my $$$ range, I'd grab this one up in a hurry. That grumpy old grouper sure has a resemblance to my Mother-In-Law (no disrepect meant to your work!).

Tim,

This one is already with the owner. I my ask him to bring it with him if he isn't flying.

I did not get castings of this one but I do have several other castings I will be bringing with me to the Blade Show.

Ray
