    I'd really like to see someone like Santos do that last one on Titanium, with all the colors.
    I can tell that I'll be studying these for a long time.
    Enjoy!

    Ken's words:

    "Two gunengravers now deceased Phillipe Griffnee (left) and Rene Delcour (right) . On a visit to my home . Rene was professor of engraving at Liege school of Engraving , he taught Phil who died 2 years ago. I introduced Phil to Holland & Holland when there wasn't any demand for top engraving in Belgium, he became their named engraver for a few years. Phil was 69 when he died. Rene became my friend since 1962. He would bring me chisels after he showed me how they used them.

    My kids liked uncle Rene because when he visited his bag was an endless pit of goodies. I have endless stories of that great character Rene."

    "He came to work well dressed undoing his collar stud releasing his collar that was starched, a hang over from the days of Tom Sanders who would come in top hat & tails, He was the Governor! The Boss!"

    When he started under Kell, engraving was decadent.
    By the mid 1960's Ken had raised it, almost single handedly back to the level it had been at in earlier days, and very quickly took it far beyond where it had ever been before.
    We all owe Ken Hunt, for pointing the way forward.
    Well stated, Barry. Ken is one of the most influential engravers the world's ever known. And I agree we all owe him a debt of gratitude.

    "Sam, the shading on the Argali was done with Muller liner tools as was lots of the background, the photo might not show the fineness. This was for the King of Bhutan H&H rifle. The makers always in a hurry so I couldn't do a Fraccasi

    This is from a rubbing."

    This is a wonderful collection of one man's work.
    I've not seen so much of Ken's work in one place before.

    Please keep them coming!
