Thought I'd share (I increased the size of the picture so it's a little blurry/pixelated):

Did you get a waiver of a copyright on that pic? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Scrimshaw? (Not sure if that is spelled correctly.) If so who did it? The scrimshaw work?

Yes it's scrimmed. I'm not sure if Edwin did it himself or if he has someone that does the scrim stuff for him.

lol...I did send emails asking for permission, but I only got a reply from one of the three. Since they didn't object I suppose that's assumed consent. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

NICE! Edwin does the work himself behind closed doors.
Those ivory is "scratched" one pit at a time to make those portrait.
I doubt if I'd use this cue if it had these ladies in the butt. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Sorry butt I am going to have to ask you to refraine from talking about having these fine ladies in the butt! /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

He might be projecting the image onto the Ivory and sort of tracing it. Still great craftmanship, but not the same as free hand etching. One of my son's who is an artist (I don't remember which one) once told me there is some evidence that some of the old masters used a method of projection and that is why some of their paintings are so-so perfect.
Nevertheless, if he etched it freehand or etched it on top of a "projection" it is still good work.

On another thought ....
Zack,
Is there any import problem with the ivory?

I agree...I don't care how it is done...I'm more interested in the scratching technique than freehand drawing capabilities. IMO, the scratching is the most important.

Edwin is going to hand carry the cues over here so there shouldn't be.

Thanks for posting the picture Joey! I'm going to still play with the cue, but I'm going to make really sure to be extra, extra careful with it, as with all of the cues I have on order. I've learned my lesson, hopefully, since I just recently did something incredibly stupid to my current Skip that's probably going to require a refinish. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif
