    My father and I were at the Fort Worth gun show today and saw something pretty cool. Harold Chrismon has a small, one man company called Pyro-Grafix. He is an ex-tatto artist that switched over to scrimshaw. However, he has added a couple new twists to scrimshaw. He does carving on the gun grips to add depth to many of the pieces. It is a pretty interesting effect when you see it up close. Then, on some of the pieces, he uses fake eyes. The scrimshaw work (like the wolf and cobra) is great, but with the other effects added to it, the skulls he does are pretty incredible.

    That is impressive! Depending on cost I'd pick up a pair for a .22 or a race gun.

    He puts 5-10 hours into each set and I am not positive, but I think the prices were 200.00-400.00 a set (barely a wage when you consider time and materials cost).

    i just dropped 100$ into the pickle jar in the safe for a set of these. i hope he makes it down to a couple of the houston shows, or at least gets a retail website going or something.

    I've talked to him at a couple shows, his only marketing at this point is showing up at gun shows. He is also happy to do custom work (he recently did a large 100 hour project). He was a helluva friendly guy, you should give him a call and explain what you would like; as well as, find out his gun show schedule.
