    my normal threads show how the mod is made and proves to you its made by me by hand so this is how they go..... and of course the DVD which was on in the workshop at the time

    ready



    shaking all over

    well on this one I have been

    new polishing technic and a friend I haven't seen for nee on 30 years was involved to present this to you

    so Sahara hmmm DVD?

    "Sahara" 2005


    Dirk Pitt: [after they come across a wrecked plane in the middle of the Sahara] I'll bet you a hundred there's a tool kit in there.

    Al Giordino: [looking at the tattered remnants of the plane] I don't wanna rain on your crazy parade, buddy, but I don't think we can fix this thing.


    now there is a block shot of this mod on my Instagram somwhere

    there is also this

    98 grams of solid silver the proper stuff, not your "oh look its plated" hallmarked by Birmingham assay this plays a part

    the original block I scrapped I wasn't happy with it so I used Sahara instead Sahara was for another customer who went dark on me note if you contact me for a mod don't play I forgot or I hope he doesn't remember as I do and I will find you etc....

    another side...hang on What?

    alfIMG_5561.jpg

    what your looking at is a solid silver 40 grams in weight faceplate all milled by hand no post no china no mate, made by me here, the plate is hand engraved by a lady I worked with 30 years ago all by hand not acid etched or machine, laser engraved by HAND

    the apprenticeship is 7 years to become a hand engraver I know of 3 living good ones it takes 10 years to become a master and part of the guild



    so how exclusive is this stu?

    well you work it out I'm getting bored of copycats and the same old mods so I thought I would do something different raise the bar so to speak




    I need to clean the silver and get rid of the rouge but I'm so tired after working on this its taken on and off 8 weeks to make

    it went out and has a lovely home now

    and as always I finish all my posts with

    love um really love my mods cases cabinets stands bags etc then like, follow me and buy one
