    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    Allan, I was very friendley with Jack Devitt. He showed me a lot of little tricks. One hell of an engraver. I sure miss him. His son Pat now works on Jewlers row doing lettering, taught by his dad. Where are you presently located? ( jtowarn4727@gmail.com )

    It's a very difficult thing to be able to develop a "style" of engraving. Yours is unique to you and very distinctive. I like it a lot!

    Peace Pipe

    Since the Hawk is engraveable, I would assume you're not going to be chopping any wood with it. ;~) Then again, it looks much to nice to do any chopping with. I might add, that smoking is hazardous to your health. So, I don't want to see you smoking it! ;~)
