Happy New Year one and all.
I am a pretty basic, straight forward meat n two veg kind of guy. I keep an open mind and take an interest in most things. However, I had an experience when I was out this for an armed walk that I have no explanation for and am curious if anyone else has had a...
I’m not going to post a picture so appreciate any guidance will be ball park. I have a very dark gold medal roe buck head that is unusual in that it has 3 or 4 smaller tines around the base. What value would you put on it ?
Thanks for your guidance
I bought a ( used ) S&B 8X56 to replace a Zeiss Diavari that I had been using since year dot. The Zeiss was a great scope but towards the end of its life started to get what I can only describe as a white cloud when looking through it at dusk/low light. It owed me nothing and was not worth...
Really simple use of materials with the application of lots of elbow grease but it's another gift ! Scales are 3000 year old bog oak with red liners. Next one is for me though as this is getting ridiculous !
Again problems getting pictures to load so I have put it in members photos.
I'm not a trophy shooter so I am interested in your opinions on whether the buck is worth having assessed ? Best head I've taken over the season, although the body wasn't as big as the head would suggest.
Apologies for the faff but I can't seem to get the images uploaded to this post but they went to members gallery.
Been a while since I have been able to get anything done in the workshop but I was given some seasoned Ash but one of my guys and as a thank you I made him a knife using it for...
End of an era. Dicksons is closing its doors at the end of next month. Been around for nearly 200 years and I think I am right in saying it is the last gun room in Edinburgh. A real shame. Wish Gary and the team there all the best for the future.
Ladies and gents may I introduce you to Storm.
Crushed silver and acrylic scales over 3mm red vulcanized fibre liners. A red mocaic pin, a black mosaic pin and finally two stainless pins to hold it all in place. A great deer blade, long and narrow with the cutting edge running virtually the...
Apparently variety is the spice of life and this one definitely came out of left field !
A cake slice made from a Red deer tine topped and tailed with some polished buffalo horn and some green and purple poly-carbonate. Pretty straight forward to make but very individual in its appearance...
A union of 3 colours, red, white and blue so simply called Jack.
Blue micarta scales over white and red liners with two stainless pins. Blade is hand made by a friend of mine and is a great deer blade, long and narrow with the cutting edge running virtually the full length. I've left a bit of...
I'm interested in others thoughts, opinion and experiences. I've been using a pair of rangefinding bins ( Leica ) for a couple of months now. Great bins no issues there. What I have noticed is that I can watch a beast going about their business but as soon as I check its range the head is up...
Antler fish priests with red vulcanized fibre liners and polished buffalo horn. Finished with a brass lanyard tube, leather lanyard and antler tip toggle. For sale in the classifieds.
Thanks for looking.
Great wee gralloching knife that you won't lose ! Hand made blade with Orange G10 scales over blue vulcanized fibre liners and a stainless pin. Kydex sheath with Boker belt clip. I originally built this to be sold on SD but it has now gone elsewhere. I do have a set of neon green scales with...
Another Polish blade. Black Micarta scales over red vulcanized fibre liners. Stainless pins and a mosaic pin. I prefer to carry my knife in my leg pocket so I designed this Kydex sheath with a removable dangler just in case you did the same. Again, built originally to be offered to you but is...
Got my binoculars back from Swarovski today and quite simply, wow ! Cost me £121 for the repair and service. They've come back looking like new with a few extras for nothing. New neck strap, new front and back lens covers and, wait for it, new lenses ! Over the moon. Only problem is they're to...
Short version. Put my binos on roof of car last night and drove off. Absolutely gutted. If anyone has or knows of a pair of any SWARO/LEICA/ZEISS in 10x42 that are for sale can you drop me a PM please.
Your help is very much appreciated.
Nice wee knife. Blade has a nice narrow point making it ideal for cutting in those difficult to reach places. Wood is cross cut Bubinga which is very hard, strong and has a high natural oil content making it very resistant to fluid ingress. Oiled and then waxed to give it a glow. Remaining...
Cold, wet, raining and blowing a gale here today so I am house bound and bored. So I took myself out to the workshop and knocked up this wee key fob out of a bit of buffalo horn tip, red fibre and two different mosiac pins.
What to do for the rest of the day now !
