CactusRose got a new customer this week which is always nice, but just as nice - if not even better - were the pictures of his scrimshaw work he shared. These pieces are Old West in motif - he also does other styles and will be sending me samples.
The artist is Dr. Peter Jensen of Germany - he can be contacted at: p.jensen@surfeu.de
I am sure glad he shared his work and with his permission ya'll get to see it too - ENJOY!!!!

Awsome! I'd love to know how he forge welds the copper to the steel. All of the work is breathtaking.

Thank you all,I am happy about the very good assessment of my work.
To Dan:Yes Dan,I`m a surgeon.But if you have a cutting problem,you
have to hurry:I am 65 and from january 05 on I will be a pensioner.Then
I will only cut in ivory horn etc.
To Larry: It`s oosic,(penis-bone of walrus)
The knife with copper in the spine is made by Daniel Winkler,it has a
black horn handle.

Thank you,
Peter aka HPJscrimshaw

Man that's increadable, never seen the like before. Realy like the Winkler knife with the copper accents.

I can't believe how realistic the scrim is, just increadable!

Hi Larry,
I will answer your e-mail here because other guys are probably also
interested in this theme.
How to start scrimshaw?
Each beginner may have his own method,I prefer at first To read all
I can get about the theme.
The absolutely best book I know is "The second scrimshaw connection",
Copyright 1985 by Bob Engnath and the House of Muzzel Loading,P.O.
Box 6217,Glendale California 91205.Unfortunately this book is out of print
but you can probably get it at ABEBOOKS.com, it`s much sought-after
and will probably cost USD 180-200.But this book answers nearly all
questions and is a very good investment.

Regards,
Peter
