R. F. Ford was a well-known spur maker that passed away in May 2011. What many do not know is that he kept records of all his spurs and bits. His wife Liz has now taken all those notes and along with other tidbits and pictures, and compiled a record of this spur makers products in book form. From spur #1 to the last pair he made, all are in the book copied right from his order book, in his own handwriting, coffee stains and all. This is a unique book that shows the life of a spur maker through his creative abilities and records. Liz has done an outstanding job of compiling and publishing this treatise and made it available to collectors, makers and those that may have an interest.
