Scrimshaw in folder knife

Recommended Posts

I show you a job to do in a beautiful folding knife of one of the best and finest craftsmen I know. His name is Javier Vogt, is Argentinian, and I have pride in him as a friend.

The slabs are of ivory, my work was the scrimshaws...

Christian,

 

BEAUTIFUL WORK! I truly love your compositions with the scroll tying the two sides together - the fine detailing in the puma and then the close up of the eyes - quite inspiring to me - I am working on a cougar design for a relief carving - I can see from your scrimshaw that I need to work a lot more on my texturing(My work is mostly cast and chased sterling silver) to bring out the subtleties of the form.

 

Thank you for sharing this.

Blessings,

Magnus
