I have collected some pictures here as well - the same as are on the Jacksand Saps website but perhaps a little easier to view.

When you really study his work you can see the intricacy in his tooling and the depth of his art.

I look at a LOT of tooling, I have books by some great teachers and have compiled a library of images of what I call exceptional tooling.

When you really get down to it and compare Chas' tooling with that of so many other great toolers you will find small details and twists that aren't apparent at first glance, you will see shapes that you don't see with others. The reason is because Chas owns a collection of stamps with some of them more than 100 years old and which are no longer made. And he is proficient with all of them.

He fits everything to the space perfectly and has a particularly keen sense of balance.

And it's not just his tooling that is exceptional. Look closely at the construction of his cases and sheathes. Everything is made to the highest standard with not a stitch out of place.

This afternoon I spent a little time watching the slideshow version of the gallery I pointed you to. This blows up all the pictures and shows off the details. Every time I do that I see something new that I haven't seen before on one of his pieces.

Chas Clements is still the unquestioned master at the art of the envelope style tooled case in my opinion. There are others knocking on the door surely but they have a LONG LONG LONG way to go to capture his attention to detail, intricacy of design, and mastery of the art.

If he gets back in the business and is able to produce cases that are anywhere close to what he has done then he will easily reclaim the number one spot as "the case" to own if you are a serious collector.

I started to run the full page slide show and my puter put up a message that there is a "digital error" in the application.

Not knowing what that means I backed off.... but I sure would like to see that slide show. Clements stuff just knocks my socks off.

No idea. It's common software and it works for me but like everything to do with the net it seems as if different computers/browsers react differently.

Sorry you can't view the slide show. You should be able to scroll through the pictures.

Simply beautiful.
And in POOR TASTE. Why would you post pictures of another man's work in this thread?

Dennis Swift makes SOLID cases. Well done and classic, simple by-the-book leather work.

He can't hold Chas' swivel knife though when it comes to the level of work Chas did. Not even close.

So while your Swift is pretty to you it's pretty plain and easy to do compared to Chas' work.

Hey, how 'bout some royalties on those C.Clements pics of mine you are using? J/K

Chas is definitely one of the true case artisans and masters of leatherworking. What an inspiration he has been. Wish there were more of his examples around for us all to see....there are just so few in existance !!

I HAD to go back! Clements work is just so beautiful I can't resist looking. Went through all the pics twice. Just astounding work.

:-) Sure as soon as I figure out how to make money off of them.

Seriously though I will be happy to remove any pictures that I have up that are owned by anyone else. OR also be willing to give credit for the use of them and provide a link for people to go to where they came from. I normally don't post pictures that I have saved to my hard drive that are not mine but did want to share Chas' work since I felt he deserved to not be forgotten or overlooked in the world of cue case making.

If you'd like a link then send me a PM with the link and I will put it up in that gallery.
