    Beautiful work, the case coloring adds a "sky" effect. What karat gold did you use?

    Thanks All.

    To answer your questions.

    Back then I guess gold cost around 250 an oz.

    Andrew, are you trying to say that my hair is now a little thin

    Ed, I laquered these guns to protect them as always. In this case with a high gloss finish but it's possible to go matt by spraying from a longer distance and/or making the spray finer.

    Steve, yes, Richard St.Ledger did the hardening.

    Ah, the ninties....
    I'll reassess my judgement of the decade, looks like it produced some good stuff after all!

    Phil, terrific gold work. I never get tired of seeing your work.

    Andrew, I maintain that I have as much hair as I ever have had. It is now however, oddly and annoyingly displaced. I believe I should leave it at that.

    Mr. Coggan,

    Your work has been enviously masterful and striking for decades, may it continue for many more. Hopefully it will last many centuries in the museums lucky enough to obtain your fine work. And if I may say so Mr. Griffiths please leave your hair in its present arrangement as the engraving world does not need a Richard Simmons (it must affect the mind).

    WOW is RIGHT! The combination of gold and dark case coloring is spectacular.

    A LOT of gold but not so much that it is too much.
