Paul Cook might be able to help, I think he used to use JS Weaver blanks.

Hello everybody,

I had written to Paul about his fabulous work and his origins.
Paul told me that she was probably built by Phil Hawker in the late 90s just before he left the company. It was probably a special order.

Paul also wrote extensively about the history of Sharpes and his encounters. Very interesting and entertaining!

Hello Steve!

I think it was a bargain! If you want to know how much then I'll write you an email.
