If a dog is man’s best friend, a 1911 strapped to the hip must be a close second. There is something right about a day in the woods with a trusted sidearm. You probably won’t need it. But it’s necessary to have. It’s an investment in security, an equalizer - and simply the right companion for a trek through the forest. For hunting season, it rides quieter on the hip than your four legged best friend.
This is the edition for the Woodsman. Deep relief oak leaves cover the slide and front strap of the frame. The coverage is extensive, and the effect is spectacular. Detailing to the slide cover, safety and slide stop and even subtle acorn screws complete the effect. There is a moment of walking through the woods on a crisp autumn day that is simply invigorating. Maybe the beauty takes your breath away for a moment. This firearm is a tribute to that joy.
This gun is made to be carried and used. You won’t easily scratch it or damage the engraving. Special consideration was given during the design and engraving for this very purpose. A little oil and scotchbrite are all the care it needs. The custom Walnut Dymondwood grips and the stainless platform are suitable for any weather. Fiber sights on select models are suitable for the low-light conditions.
There was nothing my father used to enjoy more than hunting and a day in the woods. It was always a worthwhile investment of his time. And as he often told me, “It’s cheaper than therapy.” Sometimes life really is as simple as a good day in the woods. I hope you enjoy this edition. -Merlin Enright, Master Engraver
