OHS (Ornamental Handheld Scope) Randy & Shelley Knapp

The OHS or Ornamental Handheld Scope was the handheld ornamental scope.  It was an open edition with a final count of 37.  These were made after Randy made his own Rose Engine in 2005.  The scopes are individually signed, numbered and dated.  They were made from 2005-2006.

The barrels are made from various solid woods, ornamentally turned.  The turning end is ornamentally turned and anodized aluminum.  They have a dry cell, side lit with a black background.  The cell has dichroic windows/filters, a black background with a colored piece of plastic over the black and a thick piece of clear over the colors.  The cells are ornamentally turned in the thick clear outer surface.

The cell contains flame worked glass by Shelley.

The scopes have a 2M/6P mirror system.
