A very nice example of why that stain and finish combo is so popular.

They both look great TDM, very good jobs. What grade of maple is the one WR? Like the brass end also on the patch boxes.

On my ramrods, I put the brass accessory end on the the end that goes into the forestock and carve a groove about 5/16" below the end that would stick out of the barrel and is visible when stowed under the barrel. I use the groove to wrap a leather thong around if it gets stuck down the barrel. I notice you put several grooves in yours. Is that for extra purchase, to use as a jag, or looks?

That's really nice, TDM.  Great muzzle treatment as well. Should be easy loading.
