This rifle is one that I built a couple years ago. Its a Virgina Style rifle stocked in Curly Cherry and is Iron Mounted. All Inlays and Wire on the gun are Sterling Silver. I built this rifle and did all decoration work except for the engraving, Dad did that for me on this project. Also, as a note, this was only my second time doing any amount of wire inlay.

This is a Wrought Iron Knife that I forged using some of our Original Unworked 18th Century Iron. The knife has a full length tang that goes through the Iron pummel and is peened over on the end. The guard is hand forged iron and the bolster is a turned wedding band made from Wrought. The stain on the handle is a traditional Protein dye.
