Boy, if I ever wished I was a good photographer, it is now. My pictures will NOT do justice to this:

You may remember my custom-fitted natural below.



Well, Peter from Hogan's Castings, who advertises here on the forum, offered to make a casting of it -- absolutely free of charge! I jumped on his offer and he came through with stunning results. Peter, I just cannot thank you enough. I just wish I could do your work photographic justice here.


Notice the beautiful laser etching -- my name on the right fork!





There it is. Words fail me. This is just an amazing piece of work, and I am honored to that the guys at Hogan's did this for me. Thanks again.

By the way, I forgot to mention that it is cast in bronze. They offered me the choice of bronze, brass, or aluminum.

That'll be even better once it's patinated. Is is solid or hollow?

I'd like to see a sculpted pine or hinoki boardcut in a wire-brushed finish. That would bring out the natural wood grain and would avoid undercuts that would affect casting in green sand.
It's solid, mate -- could double as a blackjack!
