    The people that know Joe and how he builds cues know that as well.... Also, raised rings on a Cog is an extreemly rare occurrence. I've personally only seen it on one cue and that cue was refinished by someone else, not Joe. I guess anythings possible.

    Scrimshaw Cues: Schick, Mottey, Drexler

    I knew Bill did the more mono chromatic engraving type but didn't think he did the color photo realism type. I've never known of any well known makers that do their own like that. It's an art form in itself.
