"carver" logo blackletter lowercase

I feel like I should know this, but I don't. Perhaps somebody else does?


Cuando diseñe una etiqueta de cerveza te pediré tu fuente, luce muy bien.

Pero creoq ue puede ser aún más condensada, tiene demasiada contraforma interna.

Me gustaría ver más, creo que esos son los caracteres menos problemáticos.

Thanks Erik. That is close. The more I look around, the more I think it might be something that somebody cut all of the pointy bits off of by hand.

Juan, if I'm translating you correctly I'll let you know if I figure it out. Unforunately, I don't have any other characters to show you. This is a logo and it's all I've seen of theirs.

After looking at a lot of blackletter typefaces while hunting for this, I am coming to the feeling that this is hand-drawn. The letterforms seem inconsistent, and over-simplified. The 'a' seems particularly out of place to me, considering the other letters. I think a broad pen-tip leads you to letters like this, probably guided by looking at some typefaces, but this doesn't seem like an attempt to recreate any particular typeface.

I vote for hand-lettered. With no other letters to confirm this is a font, it will be hard to prove otherwise.
