Got the stock safe and sound. Looks Great. Send you some pictures after deer season. I appreciate and thank you for the hard work and doing so much of the engraving by hand.

I wanted to let you know that we received the grips yesterday and they are absolutely beautiful. You are truly and artist! My husband is so happy with them. Thank you for bringing the vision I had to life and helping me give him a great birthday surprise! I attached some pics so you can see them on the gun.

~ Casey Thompson

Nice work sir, my first scrimshaw grips, any tips on care, and preservation. Thanks!

~Alex Veillon

I began putting together this rifle back in early 1959. I carried it with me aboard the submarine I served aboard and had the barrel and action engraved and three silver inlays carved into it while we were in Japan. I did not have the stock checkered because I wanted something more custom.

Then I saw some of Ben’s work and I knew I had to have him do this thing with my stock. I am so very happy with his carving and all the people the see it say “o-o-o-o-oooh!” I tell everybody if they want carving done to call Ben. The stock was rough cut from a blank by “Thompson.” And now I have the pleasure of having Ben Hansen turning it into a thing of beauty.

I just loved the work you did on the gun. Superb craftsmanship and I appreciated the gun polishing, cleaning and fitting the grip screw correctly. It was just great work all around.

"I received the grips today and am very pleased with how they turned out. The detail is wonderful, and I like the border work. Once I get the gun back together and in its presentation case, I'll be taking a photograph of it and will send a copy to you so that you can see the "big picture." Thanks again."

"I wanted to let you know how much I like your work on my grips. On the stainless Vaqueros, they look stunning. My wife looked at them and said, 'Those are gorgeous. Are they new guns???' I really like them."

Scrimshaw Pistol Grips

"I picked up the gun from the post office today and it looks fantastic! Exactly what I had envisioned. The workmanship is superb and the oiled finish is just different enough to showcase your custom work. I can't thank you enough for the work and for the outstanding deal I got. This is something that will be in my family for generations and I'm sure the kids will one day enjoy telling stories about "dad's old shotgun that he got overseas." Thanks again and please pass on my highest recommendations to anyone considering you for custom work.
