    Nice one Charles, interesting ivory. Craig knows how to build them and Jerry really knows how to pound the steel, thanks for sharing.

    Wow! That Brewer is stunning. I love the way he finished different surfaces to a different level of polish. That shows how good he truly is. When they are finished like that there is no fudge factor, flaws show like a neon sign. Wonderful collection Charles.

    I've always loved your Dowell, Christian. I had a similar one made, but sold it a year or so ago.
    Must get me another.........soon!

    Jeff, I agree Craig is an under appreciated high quality maker. So far I only have the 2, but I am on his list.

    The next 2 are a DE Cattle and a 4 bladed Congress, looking forward both, but I have special place in my heart for the DE!

    I've stated this before, but my avatar is a Brewer BackPocket in pearl with a rose gold double bomb shield, Super Sweet!

    Thanks Paul. When I saw it in a group picture of my friends collection I was drawn to it. Later when I had the chance to buy it I jumped on it. Real pleased to own it.
