    Carry on.
    Very well said, and I completely agree

    A variety. Have not posted a lot of these.

    One is an xx era (early 40's to mid 60's) xx canoe in fantastic shape.

    Gus,

    Nice pictures of some really nice stag! Who is the maker on the bent gunstock jack with pen? If you have a chance please tell us more about it.

    Hi Ken,

    That one was made by Bailley Bradshaw. I purchased it from Randy (Nifrand).
    The stag on it is very figured. Not sure where Bailey get it, but he always seems to have very nice and unusual stag. Pretty sure he used 3V on the blade.

    I can not wait to add yours to the fold.
