Scrimshaw by Garbo

I have always been fascinated by scrimshaw work but only admired it from a distance, until a year or so ago, I decided to jump in.  There are several scrimshaw artists that do work on knives but the one who's work has always fascinated me the most is Gary "Garbo" Williams.  I have had him do three pieces for me to date.  Here are pictures of the work;

The first set is the Deer Hunter which is on a S R Johnson knife and the engraving is by Ray Cover Jr.

This set is titled the "Buffalo Hunter" which is on a Don Hanson knife.

The last set, the Gambler and the Dance Hall Gal is my favorite so far.  The knife is by Master Smith Ron Newton.

Engraving, some random pictures

I haven't posted for awhile so here are some pictures of some engraving.  I like many types of knives however, those with engraving tend to be among my favorites.  Enjoy!
