    That engraving is breath taking. My dream is over, back to the coal mines.

    That’s some seriously gorgeous engraving.

      Is the hammer naked, for some reason?

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        What we can see of the hammer is undecorated. The spur might be, but we can’t see it from this angle.

          It kinda stands out.

    That right there is worth the price of admission.

    Having lived a few miles away from Sportsman’s Finest for 20 years, I finally got in there for the first time a few days ago. Damn! Like a little Cabella’s in some ways. They not only have an M2 on the floor, they have a 40mm machine gun, I didn’t even know there was such a thing. I knew about the version sitting in the front turret of a Cobra, of course, beside the minigun, but this bad boy was designed to be fired by hand, controls resembled the M2. Bond Arms motor home was parked in front. Really. Neat. Place!

    Wow, that’s a fine piece. The pure skill involved is breathtaking. Cause with weapons one boo-boo and it’s toast. Reminds me of a old harley shovelhead one of my now dead friends had. Every spot you could engrave was. Super fine bike. I guess this practice fell out of vouge nowdays. I still like it though.

    I personally would never own one like it. It’s a collector item not a “shooter” All my toys are shooters that end up in the muck,mud,rain and sometimes the river. Hey that’s life outdoors.

    Otto is the Master!!! and for those who use personal vaporizers, he does some killer mechanical mods as well!!

    If you can manage to lay your hands on them… rare as hen’s teeth

    I have seen short video clips of people engraving by hand before. the ability to assemble scrolls and curls into coherent patterns is simply amazing. Give me a jack on on ice and a few cold beers and I could watch engraving for hours!
