As a 3rd generation locksmith, I think that's really cool Lenn!

Looks great -- well done.

Cool, I've often wondered about how effective a "Jailers Key" as I think they are called, would be 8)

Thanks Nath, oh heck i`m nothing special we just go out to the shop and try to make something that works.
No way should i be compared to those that make stuff that`s exact replica`s of objects.
We appreciate that our creations capture peoples interest.

That is awesome Pitchy!

I recall my late father having something like that in his lock shop, that he got from his dad; but it got stolen along with some cash, a couple of original Colt revolvers and a few other antique locks many years ago. We also had a couple of brass blackpowder .22 and .32 caliber 1-shot "Jailer Key guns", just like this one:

And yup, those were also stolen... :cry:

Thanks Darrel and Bill, that`s a nice looking key pistol.
We got started on one today but it`s going to be clunky compared to that one.
