Larry;

These are awesome, is there site or web place to see them for sale?

Looks like you have fine tuned the process and they are very clean.

Greetings!

We are still in the R&D/proto-type stage (but have been making cases since I was an apprentice, so you can always special order thru the store. We have several being trial worn...hope to warrantee for 3 years, but still seeing if we can on the wood cases.

this will be our go-to style and will retail right at $500 including engraved back (not gold)

we are changing style of the back. Almost done milling a delrin pusher this AM so we can offer backs in gold silver titanium
bronze german silver etc. We have the micro wood screws in silver and gold ready to go.

Happy Milling! :D

I like the sterling and wood combo. Engraving looks great.
