Jason R. Webb has recently shared a piece of scrimshaw he finished not long ago on an oval cabochon for a nurse. The sequence is below from start to finish, and as you can see he does all of the scrimming before he adds the ink. The tool appears to be a custom grind that has a steeper angle – an option if you contact Coulter Precision Tools. Jason writes:”…I use the stock 40° about half the time, but I also have Charles Coulter make me 30° and 35° extended tips for very fine lines. I tried a couple 20° tips but they snapped very easily as the carbide is brittle. The 30° are quite delicate, I really have to be conscious of the pressure, the point in the photo I sent you is a 30°. …” Thanks for sharing the pics Jason, your work is amazing!
