The best book in the scrimshaw field. Here is another book by the tireless Blackie Collins, weapons designer and author, produced in collaboration with his brother, Michael Collins, accomplished scrimshaw artist. The book tells you what you need to know about scrimshaw. It talks about the tools you will need and how to make them. It takes you through the preparation of the material to the finished product in a step-by-step fashion. Four examples shown from start to finish; a pendant, hand gun grips, belt buckle, and a whale’s tooth. Heavily accented with more than 85 clear, instructive photographs, many of them closeups to see the fine detail. 45 pages.
