Exceptional miniatures by master craftsman Michel Lefaivre.
Michel Lefaivre is recognized by his peers as one of the best craftsmen in the world in the field of miniature weapons. He has been awarded twice as the best craftsman of the year (2001 M.A.S, 2005 NRA) and is the recipient of the "Metalworking Craftsman of the Year" award from the Joe Martin Foundation for 2010. His attention to detail, his meticulousness in reproducing identical parts and his constant search for mechanical perfection give his miniatures a particularly realistic and authentic look. The mimicry is so perfect that you have to put a real scale object next to a Michel Lefaivre miniature to perceive the reduction in scale. Each miniature is assembled by hand. These masterpieces are unique pieces or very small series. The engravings are made by the best workers in France in this field. Michel is my very esteemed friend. I wish to make his work known to as many people as possible because his immense talent is not well known. Should you be interested in his prestigious Boutet duellist encased set for which he won the silver medal at the M.A.S 2001, please get in touch with me on my contact page. I will pass your details to Michel so he can contact you.
