For one of a kind and used items
“Unlike so many others associated with Living History, you actually produce super authentic items and satisfy customer’s requests in a timely manner. I’ve been absolutely delighted with everything you’ve ever done or made for me.” Mike C.-New York
“I have been and am now the proud owner of several Clay Smith’s guns and have nothing but high praise for his workmanship. The quality of the fit and finish, historic accuracy and the shooting ability are unsurpassed. They shoulder as if they are part of your anatomy.” Dave M.-Virginia
"Thank you for a lovely knife which will remind me of
the Williamsburg craftsmen I knew and the ones I still know today."
"I wanted to thank you for your hard work and beautiful craftsmanship. The gun is a fantastic showpiece that is a welcome addition to our home." Jerry B.-Kentucky
"Rifle came yesterday afternoon! WOW. It was well worth the wait, I knew you were a good craftsman by your reputation but I did not know you were this good! I can not wait to zero it in and fire it and show it off at the range." John A.-New York
"The rifle arrived and it is fantastic. I have never seen one to rival it. Your artistry is awe-inspiring...I feel really lucky to have acquired this gun." Jeff H.-Louisiana
"In my opinion, this is the finest set of dueling pistols made in America in recent history." Ed Rayl-West Virginia
"Musket just arrived. Think it is the most beautiful thing that I
own. Great job. Thanks." Steve M.-California
"The gun arrived yesterday and it's excellent! It feels much lighter
in the hand than I expected and it's very well balanced. I won't get a
chance to shoot it for a little bit, but I look forward to trying it out
for the first time, I know it will be an excellent shooter! Thank you
very much for an excellent gun that I'm proud to own." Eli
"Got home last night to find a very long box on the front porch. Being a trained and experienced law enforcement officer I was able to deduce that a rifle was most probably inside the package. You had said "It turned out nice". That is an understatement. What I got is a very fine rifle indeed. Everything I asked for and as much as I could have hoped for. I am really impressed with the inletting. The curl on the wood is especially fine. My only regret is that it will be the week end before I can shoot it. Thank you very much it has been a pleasure doing business with you. I hope we can do further projects in the future." Larry Z.-Oklahoma
"Today the 3 damascus hunting knives arrived in good order. I'm impressed beyond my expectations; the best workmanship I've seen in a long time. As good a quality as a modern Bo Randall blade ... at 1/2 the price. Terrific customer service TOO. Best regards."- J. Reeves- Louisiana

Even when I'm not in the shop, it seems I'm working on guns.
Vacation? I have heard of that. Isn't that where you go away from home for a period of time
then return more tired than when you left?
