The true, old time craftsmen used a piece of rusted wrought iron and a fairly strong nitric acid treatment. Then worked the wood surface with a torch or other heat source. Gave the very same end result...........without the brain damage associated with very hazardous chemicals.

Nope. Never met him. But I suspect YOU are very closely related to him.

Watched my old buddy..........one of the most talented, respected (have someone explain "respect" to you) and sought after flintlock builders in the northeast use the method I described MANY times.

Maybe you should read up on it.

He's dead.....the Kirklands are single handedly responsible for the muzzleloading upsurge before they came out with all the modern crap they call muzzle loaders today.

Study up.

My buddy's widow just passed this spring. But she gave me a stick of walnut and one of cherry from his shop. Two pieces of wood that gun builders around here would give their left nuts for. Gonna have a couple different fellows make me box calls from them.

Nope. He was a turkey hunter, too.

He was a turkey hunter when there were only 4 of us in this entire area.

I get the feeling you two are getting closer...It's almost like the Bickerson's. They fought, but the love and affection was there. When are you two going Turkey hunting together? Take pics...please.

I took a pic with my foot on a skunks neck one time....never shot me a Yoder.

I got a lot of mileage out of that dead skunk photo I took it special for a hOt shot internet turkey hunter that got hiz azz skunked that year.....

I dropped the turkey I was toting and chased that skunk 50 yards to get the shot my buddy thought I was crAzy....after I shot it my buddy came walking up I said hold my gun while I get a picture.
