When you hear the word “pepper box” you typically think of something that grinds pepper corns for your fine dining experience. When The Gun Room Inc. says “pepper box” we are talking about the precursor to the modern revolver. When the pepper box first came out it gave an instant tactical advantage over the single shot firearms that were in use at the time. In fact it could be said the pepper box was the first tactical pistol ever in that it could shoot rounds just as fast as you could cock it and pull the trigger.
The pepper box resembles the famous gatling gun that would come out later with it’s multi-barreled design and it’s ability to shed lead.
The Gun Room Inc. is fortunate to know some of the best collectors on the planet and it’s this relationship with their customers that brings in some of the most collectible firearms you’ve never heard of. Enter the Blissett Pepper Box!
This pistol is one of the finest we’ve seen at any auction anywhere period.
Isaac and John Blissett were gun makers, jewelers, and engravers for the Crown and the Duke of Sussex until around 1850.
When it comes to hunting and bushcraft nothing beats a good knife, and not having one can mean the difference between a good time and a miserable one.
At The Gun Room Inc. we have a few of the favorites but we also have a few of the best. Take Alan Warren’s fine custom knives for example.
Yes you’ve probably dreamed of owning one if you’re into edged instruments of art. Some people call Alan’s knives tools, others call them weapons, here at The Gun Room Inc. we call them art.
If you’re in the know and have been following Alan’s endeavors in magazines or in the world wide web of who’s it-what’s it then you know Alan Warren knives are very hard to get. Alan takes great pride in his knives and all of them are one of a kind that’s made for work.
Some people put them in a display case, other people like this writer use them in the field and pass them on to our sons and daughters.
If you are a big game hunter then you know the axiom of carrying several knives to get the dirty work finished. The other high quality knives lose their edge before the work is done, on an elk for example, so you use a second or even a third to finish it up. People who actually use their Alan Warren knives only use the one, the line between art and science has been merged into the pinnacle of heat treatment hardness VS toughness VS form and function. If you have waited a year or more to get an Alan Warren knife and got your hopes real high, you weren’t disappointed. Never a complaint other than waiting for Alan to catch up with orders. He doesn’t rush he takes his time and turns out the best in blades period.
I would say check out his work at a show, but he doesn’t go to any. Alan doesn’t advertise, he just makes fine knives for a lucky few.
At The Gun Room Inc. we are lucky enough to have an extensive collection of Alan Warren Knives in stock and on display. Give us a call at (503)777-3931 or better yet come on down to the shop on the corner of 56th and Foster Rd. and see them for yourself!
