    Default Engraving Poll - What articles do you engrave?

    I agree with Marcus Hunt in that it will be interesting to know what kind of engravers frequent the Cafe. Take the poll and let's find out! / ~Sam

    My engraving is pretty much confined to 18th C. American longrifles. Barrels, locks, inlays, ect., and in the styles of that period. My work is better than a beginner, but not "pro" enough for anything beyond what I work on. Early American gunsmiths were seldom really good at engraving, although there are some exceptions, so I can get away with less than great work, but I do want to be better than I am.

    ....my own knives, primarily. I have been engraving cigar cutters and money clips as more serious practice plates.

    At this point in my engraving career I will only engrave my own knives that I make. My most valuable lesson so far has been the tutotial on sharpening the 120 degree graver and the flat graver. Thanks again Sam. Jack Davenport

    I currently only engrave practice plates and jewellry items that I make.

    I have thought of doing customized Golf Drivers, but I'm not too sure how easy some the the materials would be to engrave. Has anyone seen this?

    I suppose they could fall into the knife catagory but I've done quite a few cigar cutters along with the other usual items. David
