Ray, don't know if this will help: http://www.artichoke.ca/artistDetail.php?artist=961 - you may be able to get a photocopy of the article via one of the places listed here: http://www.artichoke.ca/about.php

He's also mentioned in Andy Dohan's Signature Cane book published last year: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280213733501

It definitely is George Sarfi: last year an almost identical weight was on ebay, just blue instead of red outer "petals" - and this one included the gs cane given in Andy's cane book.

Ray,

I'd be curious to see a photo of what you bought.  I think the figure of 150 weights is a bit high, I'm pretty sure he made less.  I'm not sure if you were able to contact him: he's changed his email address quite a bit.  If you're interested in learning more about the specifics of the weight you bought let me know and I'll put you in touch with him (I'm his son).
