    Hello the other Sam ,
    indeed it was a complex design and it took a long time , a long work also to cut and to inlay.
    I have an apprentice, Valerian Henrotte, a clever guy who helped me a lot on this.
    It was more than one year of work for the two rifles and not yet completely finished! many different parts, all decorated, and the barrels too! )

    Absolutely outstanding, and many, many more complimentary remarks. Really love it!

    Congratulations to you and your apprentice.

    Thank you Sam,
    I like to explore new possibilities and I had the opportunity to imagine a decoration in that style which is unusual on a gun.
    Arabic style is mainly abstract and geometrical and I have thought that it was well suited to this type of rifle.
    These two rifles are built by Hartmann and Weiss for a Sheik of Arabia , this one should be displayed ( in the white) at their booth at the Las Vegas SCI show .
    Great! I'll get to see them! Will you be at SCI next year?

    Alain,

    I have already used every word I know to describe the beauty of your previous creations. I am out of words, only feelings left.

    Not just magnificent, but "Jaw-dropping" magnificent.
    Very well designed....and so clean.
    In the (paraphrased) words of our friend Winston Churchill," Some of the best engraving in the world is being done today."
    Bravo Alain

    Thanks again!

    I will not travel to Las Vegas this year, maybe in 2016, I hope.

    Weldon I believe that you are right, I deserve a little rest , drinking a good glass of Burgundy wine and playing some tunes on the fiddle

    I was going to forget: Happy New Year !
