What Some of Our Customers Are Saying

January 27, 2016

Hi Jimi,

I just mailed out the order form  (the one from your website) along with a check  (thanks for the invoice ) for the arrow for our son. We are looking forward to the honor of presenting him with a beautiful piece of art that will remind him of the journey he enjoyed in Cub Scouts!

Hi Jim! 

We had our Arrow of Light ceremony tonight. It was incredible!  What a memorable event. The boys (and parents) are so thrilled with their arrows. I've attached some photos. We did have one boy absent, which was unfortunate, but will present him his arrow next month at our Blue and Gold dinner.  

Thank you so very much for your hard work to give our boys something to treasure for a lifetime!

I receive them Tuesday and they look great.  Thank you for getting the order done so quickly in time for our ceremony. I mailed a check to you Wednesday morning.  

Thank you for your hard work.

Jimi, 

I received the arrows this weekend.  Although the shipping box was badly beat up and opened on one end, the arrows were in pristine condition, thanks to your wrapping of each arrow individually in newspaper.  I understand that these are showcases and will be treated as such.  We will have a ceremony for the boys and inform them about the beauty and work that went into each. 

Do you have a website or could you send some pictures of how these are put together?  It will definitely help the boys understand the care and thought that went into the construction of each. 

Please let us know when you get the check. 

A Million Thanks,
Kash Mahmud

We received the arrows and they look great. I did finally get a check signed by 2 leaders and placed in the mail today. Sorry it takes a bit to get signed. The weather around here has been lots of fun.

Hello Jimmy,

My scout's parents originally thought your price was high because they did not know what to expect. Having seen your work, I told them, 'If you want cheap wooden practice arrows with plastic fletching and paint that looks like a second grader did it, we don't want to buy arrows from Jimmy.' They had never seen anything other than that.

When they saw the look on their son's faces as they received the arrows you made for them, they knew that we had made the right decision. These arrows are beautiful!! All the boys wanted to do when they got their arrow was look at it! The arrows are each a work of art! The work you put into making the arrows definitely represents the hard work they have done over the previous 18 months. Several of the families have already had display boxes made for their son's arrow. My wife insisted that we have a full scale shadow box to display our son's achievements with the arrow at the top!

Thank you Jimmy for a treasured memento for my son and all the boys in my den as they continue their adventure in Scouting.


Sincerely,

James Krogman

Jimi,

I got the arrow yesterday. It was beautiful!! (You were right, it's even more beautiful than the first one you sent) And it was in one piece! LOL My mail lady even made a comment about it.

Thank you, thank you for painting. I almost hate to touch it, it looks nice the way it is. I was going to ask you about what kind of paint you use but was a bit hesistant since You must have read my mind. Yes, I would like to know what kind of paint and color you used.

You are great!

The arrow arrived a short time ago. It is magnificent and I feel so much better presenting the boy with this arrow rather than the cheap plain blue one I purchased.  I appreciate you assistance through this whol process. Thanks so much for the beautiful work and for putting up with my constant barrage of inquiries. I will be contacting you again in about 6 months.

Hi Jim -- the arrows came on Sat (we've had a hectic weekend).

I am absolutely thrilled with them -- the pictures on your website do not
do them justice! Thank you so much!

The arrows arrived today.

What craftsmanship! Superb details and delivered as promised. I couldn't ask for more.

Please let me make credit where credit is due. On behalf of the boys, adult members and parents of Pack 329 from Lorain, Ohio… Thank You. I know three boys who will each cherish their arrow for a lifetime.   David

 

 

Jim,

I got the arrows about 10 minutes ago. They are all I expected them to be and I'm sure my friends will love them even though I missed Christmas by a few days. 

Thanks again,

Bill

 

 

Jim I got my arrow today, Every thing looks great! The Arrow point is absolutely Beautiful! The Feathers are as Perfect as can be.  I will order again soon.

Thank You.

I received the flint knife yesterday afternoon...THANKS!  It is exactly what my wife needed for her lecture.  I even told her that it was the original flint knife used by Joshua to circumcise the Israelites.  Somehow after 31 years of living with me she knew that was not exactly the truth.  Anyway thanks again,    Mike



I received the four arrowheads that you made. You did an excellent job on the four points. Thank you very much and I will order more.

THE SIX ARROWS ARRIVED TODAY AND MY WIFE'S INITIAL REACTION UPON UNWRAPPING THE FIRST WAS, "EXQUISITE". THE ARROW OF LIGHT CEREMONY FOR OUR PACK WAS LAST NIGHT. ALL OF THE PARENTS COULDN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE BEAUTY OF THE ARROWS YOU HAND MADE. OF COURSE THE SIX BOYS WERE ECSTATIC AS WELL AND THE ARROWS TRULY MADE THEIR ARROW OF LIGHT AWARD AN HONOR THEY'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER IN THE YEARS TO COME, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY LOOK UPON THE FINE ARROW YOU CRAFTED. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS FROM MYSELF AND ALL THE FAMILIES OF TOPANGA PACK #24. - GREG

 


Jim and Trish produce some very beautiful and excellently crafted pieces. They were very flexible and attentive to my needs in the production of my order. The pieces look authentic because they are. These two do some beautiful craftsmanship and make some very fine articles. More people should know. Where these days will you find a craftsman who goes out on a 10 day flint and materials expedition in the wilderness? Jimmy and Trish are great to work with and are truly fine artisans.

Hi Jim & Trish:   I want to thank you and Trish again for the fine workmanship and attention to detail that you put into your products!! When you say Museum Quality you mean exactly that. I do have a couple of things in mind that I would like to get in the future--nothing like Apache Plume arrow shafts--but just pretty much standard stuff, well almost. I do have some Sioux material that I got 2 or 3 years ago from Prairie Edge and I'm thinking of adding one of your plains type arrows with a buffalo bone point to the collection. Well that's all for now. Will stay in touch . Thanks again---Dave

 

 

Well done!! I appreciate the craftsmanship and the excellent presentation of your wares. (And a certain cat in my lap salutes you both also.) Thank you for this glimpse into another, better time and for sharing your appreciation of its greatness.

Jim and Jo Rogers

 

 

Attached is a photo taken Wed night of the 2 Arrow of Light recipients.  On the left is Talmage and then me in the middle and on the right is Jeff.  One of my Cubs father took this picture and as you can read he can't wait to get one of your awesome arrows.  As a matter of fact this Cub, Danny will be earning his Arrow and graduating in January!!!  As always we ALL look forward to working with you in January..
