Some of the stuff I got with pocket change by never spending it, the Oldsmobile Achieva with the hail damage I mentioned in the fishing car thread, took my butthead ex to Mazatlan on pocket change, my Meiser, my 10 wt. Winston, a lot of things I have.
The guy has a lot of knife scales as well. Some that have to be seen to be believed. I have had a hard time finding stabilized wood big enough to do rod parts. All kinds of people have stuff for pens. Unfortunately pen blanks are just a tad to small to be useful. I've never seen a better job of double dyed stabilizing. Awsome stuff.
