Cabin Creek Muzzleloading: Brad and Shane Emig

Brad Emig has started a blog for Cabin Creek Muzzleloading where you can find the latest examples of their work. Below are two examples of Brad and Shane's work from their blog.

an early Reading Rifle by Brad and Shane

This rifle exhibits unique, hand made brass mounts, All made here in our shop, specific to the original gun in every detail.  Every screw is hand made, as are the sights and the hand forged wrought iron trigger and triggerplate.  The rifle also features a 51 inch wrought iron barrel and a custom made lock by Brad.  An "Aged" finish is also exhibited on this piece.

Shane made this fully functionioning fighting knife to demonstrate high art and precision handwork.

 The curly maple handle is octagon, then transitions to 16-sided, then into a turned silver Wedding Band.

The "Wiggle" file work on the blade, matches the file work on the sterling silver spacers at the bolster.
