Sea Company - Recon Unit: Gunner Toy
Gunner is easily identifiable by his ever present wool beanie, a number of tattoos on his body, including a swallow and anchor on his chest, twin cannons on his back and a ‘mum’ tattoo on the back left side, two knives on his belt – “one fer cuttin’, ‘n’ one fer stabbin’” and a marlinspike.
He is the crewman of the deck responsible for the ship's hull and all its components, including its rigging, anchors, cables, sails, deck maintenance and small boat operations. He’s the one who makes sure the ship is sea ready and he takes his responsibilities seriously. He loves the ship almost as much as the ‘Captain’ and isn’t afraid to use his stabbin’ knife if he’s unhappy with you.
He is often heard saying “Make yourself useful. If you can’t tie knots, fetch the rum.”
Handmade using 100% pure new wool felt and accessorised with found objects, authentic materials and a slightly obsessive attention to detail.
Recon Unit is around 27cm tall.
