    Very evocative and accurate description, Will! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Gotta love a good spear. The little Beagle gets carried the most, and is a pocket regular. The 2016 Forum is a favorite special occasion carry. The vintage Barlow's were a gift from a generous forumite and spend most time on display. In the second pic of "chepper" Spears, the Dog Bone and Yeller Toenail get occasional pocket time. Forgot to include my full sized Sunfish.

    Really admirable selection, quite a Spear arsenal :D

    Like those silver ingots too, are they easy to get hold of?

    Regards, Will

    Thank you. The odd silver ingots were just some "home pours". Started as shiny new bars/rounds, and turned them into odd ducks. In little ceramic dishes, I can bring around an ounce up to temp with a handheld mapp gas torch. Any more than that would probably need a forge (I know many of you already have) to hit liquid temp. Another shape I've enjoyed is an ounce pour into a dapping block (sort of half round shape).
