Below is a link to a document showing a Tinker Dirk that I had customized by a talented jeweler, George Postgate of Postgate Fine Jewelers (http://postgatejewelers.com/).

I asked Tinker Pearce for permission to customize his dirk, and he agreed.

This was such a large file we weren't sure where to host it - if you have a suggestion on a better place, please let me know.

It's an amazing piece, I hope that you all will enjoy the craftsmanship of both Michael Tinker Pearce and George Postgate.

The stone is a very large citrine which is the same as a Carringoram except that it is not from Scotland. The other small stones are natural star sapphires. George P.
