    Default The Corps of Discovery Colt

    Just completed a special Colt SAA for the Colt Collectors Association auction in October.
    "The Corps of Discovery" features Lewis, Clark and Sacajawea..... and lots of deep relief engraving, sculpting & a little gold inlay.
    Hope you enjoy,
    Weldon

    Nimschke couldn't have done it this well. Truly outstanding work. Nice and deep, fantastic composition. Just wonderful, classic engraving with a Weldon touch.

    Just wonderful!!!! Can you "guesstimate" how many hours this project took? even a ball park number.

    The crescent cuts in the leafs...how do you make those cuts? A scalloped tool?

    Thank you, Sam!
    Thanks Bill.... combining elements is one of my favorite things to do when I have the opportunity to do so.
    Donny,
    Somewhere between 400-500 hours.
    The scallops are done with a large round dot punch on edge.

    that could qualify around here as fantabulous. amazing for sure. i esp like the restraint in the use of gold. in this case, i feel it adds to the overall appearance. in many works, there's so much gold, one loses sight of the engraving. a true museum piece ! the more i look at your gun, i wonder how many hours must have been spent at the drawing board. such a design just doesn't flow out of the pencil tip. i suspect many iterations before the final work.

    Excellent work! I really like the compass, does it have meaning and/ or just part of the design?... either way, it's really well done and fits in just right!
