This bit has a lot of weight and feel. It has a five inch mullen mouth connected to the cheek with stainless ball bearings. The 7 5/8 inch cheeks are mounted with 6 large pieces of finely engraved sterling silver. This bit is an early example of Wes Griffin's work, he rarely makes bits anymore and is highly regarded as a master engraver. The cheek and mouth are clearly hand cut and forged with no pre made parts. The mouth has six pieces of inlayed copper and the Texas star on each cheek is domed.
