SEWE – February 12 – 14, Charleston,SC

See you at SEWE !


This coming weekend, February 12 – 14, we will be attending the SEWE Show in Charleston, SC.  Our booth is #58 at the Galliard Center.  I’ll have the rod pictured along with this blog posting available for inspection and purchase.  I’m very excited about this rod as it was almost a year in the planning and making.  It features a beautiful real seat made of stunning Amboyna Burl.  But the feature I’m proudest of is the Damascus Steel Hardware which is enhanced with my interpretation of a Sun Flower engraving and 24k gold inlay work – all done by me in my studio.  I’ve personally never seen Damascus steel incorporated into a reel seat, much less one that is engraved and inlayed with gold.  I believe it to be truly a one of a kind item.  The rod is further appointed in beautiful Rattan for the grip, a mortised swell butt with Walnut inserts and lovely red silk wraps.  To round out the package it includes a handmade in Italy, leather rod tube and handmade, embroidered rod bag.  Please stop by my booth to see this rod and others, all hand made by myself.
