Evgeniy,,, Thanks so much..

Do you use multiple contractors? , Whoever is doing this,,,does he also do the engraving?, and the investment cast itself?

Many years ago I took a very small , local, jewelry making class... It was very short, not very good, but showed me how really hard each step is.. Especially for those who do it start to finish..

Many do the whole process as you do Evgeniy. Find the very best specialist / master for each part.. Great way to do it. Can sometimes be expensive, but the pieces do come out great!!

- Is it possible to show us the investment cast process?

About shipping no problem (just mailings are closed only with Sweden and Australia, as I know - this is their initiative), about payment available only bank transfer
I receive orders and send, people continue to receive my packages

Excellent!! the ultrasonic bath is a good cleaning procedure.. The whole process [cast] is complicated and long start to finish but makes a great copy... Thanks much!

That's a cool video. Are there any known SS rings that had jewels in the eyes?

yes it was, but it was done unofficially, by the owner of the ring, for example rubins

Of course, everything is very simple, just a flat area
A flat platform was made on the ring and the back side of the skull was also
There could not be anything else, and then the skull was soldered

Hi Evgeniy, I just joined yesterday. I just purchased two HRs from Hapur. I’m interested in purchasing a couple from you.
I tried clicking on your profile to send you a PM but for some reason it won’t let me.

I found this forum while doing research on an HR that a co-worker gave me. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a fake, and not a good one at that.
I’ve attached some pics of it.

b2l ,,, Welcome to the forum.. Yes Hapur does make a very nice copy too!. His beliefs are a bit different,, if you check out his website his are made in a period press with a die!

Evgeniy uses the '[lost wax method'] or 'Investment Cast'. And there are many ways to accomplish that. One at a time,,many [on a tree], , centrifugal,, pressure,, vacuum assist!. What ever,, his are also very very nice copys. There is no doubt in my mind that if he was making these as he does now 20 years ao they would all pass for authentic!!

You already have a couple of Hapurs,,sure why not treat yourself to a couple of Evgeniys.... Keep trying , you'll get him ,,try

Received my rings from hapur. The skull is kind of flat and the triangles look to be too close to the skull.

Hi to all!

I’m new here, so let me present to you…

I’m from Italy and 8 years ago I bought the Antonio Scapini book with an Italian made ring copy in 925 silver:

After 8 years of wearing, the ring looks like new but now it’s too small for me, so I ordered another one in bigger size from the same site. What I received it’s uncommentable, ahahahah:

So, I sent the comparison to the vendor asking for a replacement and finally I received a nicer ring, specially made for me:

[Linked Image from i.ibb.co]

But after this experience I started to search for a better quality copy and I found Evgeniy, initially I was a bit afraid to order from Russia because the actual situation, in fact the first attempt to send money to him with online bank transfer was a failure, the second attempt going physically to my bank gone fine.

Evgeniy starts to work and later sent me some pics of the finished ring: it’s a beauty!

The first attempt to receive the ring was a failure: the Russian customs sent it back to Evgeniy without any explaination. The second attempt gone fine and this is a comparison with my new Italian made ring and my new Evgeniy ring!

I have a Russian friend, so in the future when he or his parents will go to Russia, I will ask to grab another ring for me without need to order from Italy again…

Simone (or anyone else) what size ring is that and what finger do you wear it on?

I wear mine as Himmler intended and I'm a size 9, but I'm also 6'2". Along with Evgeniy's repros, I've seen some BIG actual honor rings...makes me wonder what kind of sausage fingers some of the SS were sporting!

That's what I'm talking about, look that thing, it's a big boy! Unless they are a giant, there's no way someone is wearing that on their ring finger.

If the situation does not change by the end of September, I will make a new ring for you as part of the ring insurance obligation.
One of my acquaintances will fly to the states at the end of September and send you a ring already there ... I think this is the situation with your customs - "friendly" attitude towards ordinary Russians and I think they deliberately threw my package into the far corner

I’d really appreciate that. The order was for two rings. One for me and one for my wife. My name is Brent Nelson.

,,,, Everyone having the same problems. The mail hasn't been right since covid.

A month really isn't that bad.. With the tracking number they should be able to tell you exactly where it is and approximate when your getting it...

I had a month wait from Canada and I'm in NY!!!! The rings are excellent,,it will be worth the wait!

@ ABTmRw

Sorry, I read only now your question

I ordered a 13 size (22,2 mm) that’s perfect for my finger ring

I wear it on the right with the skull not facing me, for personal reasons

Are you saying covid is the problem? It seems that all restrictions have been lifted a long time ago or do they remain in your country?

Things here in the US are very different now, than before covid.
I now live in Missouri. Seems when I buy something from New York or New Jersey, it will take 10 0r 11 days for the USPS money order to get there.
But I receive the package back in 6 or 7 days. Same thing to the North West also.
Many businesses here are still using Covid and Truck drivers excuses for there lack of interest in doing there jobs. The NEW USA.

Thanks for the info. I guess you have large fingers. Otherwise, even modern science agrees with the Nazis: being overweight is not good for you! No ill will of course.

And like ed773 says, that is a nice luger.

E. , The U.S. Postal system went thru a lot of changes.. Even within country you can not get guaranteed Priority 2nd day mail.... IF, if its pretty close to your state yes. But from NY to CA they can no longer guarantee it will be 2nd day!..... And Customs is its own entity . Both organizations are short handed,,,seems no one wants to be a mailman any longer..
With a new administration in a few years things will probably get a bit better..... - But as long as your customer has their tracking number it will tell them exactly where the package is... One time I waited a month and when I checked where it was it was 5 miles away from me. I took a 3 min drive and picked it up instead of waiting for it to be re routed to my post office!. Have patience guys...

Many if not most post offices are under staffed, not unusual to have only 1 teller serving dozens of people languishing in line, also they don't deliver every day, sometimes twice a week and this in a large metropolitan suburb.
Seemed to have started with covid and this is a lingering effect, just like supply chain issues, inflation and everything else.

Ordered a guitar from France and I was prepared to wait months for it, to my surprise I had it in less than a week from DHL, though I was rudely surprised with a $135 import fee.
