•    PPK-S With Tank   

    This is a relief-carved stainless PPK/S Walther that I engraved for a customer who was a tanker in Germany in the 60s. Along with the relief-carved oak leaves I was able to engrave a close up of the M60 A3 tank that he commanded in Germany! The engraved tank is less than half an inch tall!

  •    Open Top Navy Colt   

    This is a very elegant American Scroll engraved Colt in approximately 3/4 coverage. It features an in-the-white metal with inked cuts. This is an unusual revolver, one that wasn’t produced for long so reproductions are the only ones that make for decent engraving candidates.

    his revolver also features an engraved eagle on the hammer.
  •    Bright or Inked Cuts   

    Here are two examples of the same engraved piece.

    I’m often asked the question as to the difference between bright and inked cuts! These pictures will show the difference. It’s a matter of personal taste as to whether one darkens, or inks, a cut or leaves it bright.

    The advantage of inking a cut, as a general rule, will make the engraving pop from the background. Most people tend to prefer inked cuts as it creates the illusion of depth.

    Example of inked cuts on the 1872 Open Top Frame.

  •    PPK-S Eagle Scout Pistol   

    This Walther PPK/S is fully engraved in American Scroll and features an Eagle Scout theme throughout. It features 5 American Bald Eagles and the Boy Scouts of America badge. This makes for a very handsome carry and/or display piece to commemorate gaining the rank of Eagle Scout!

    This pistol would look equally nice in a holster or a glass-front display case.

  •    Completed Hi-Power   

    Here’s the completed work on the Hi-Power I posted previously. It’s ready to ship back to the customer for final assembly.

    I can handle this task on your behalf or, if the customer wants, they can disassemble/assemble their own pistol to save money, too.

    This particular pistol is engraved in full relief carved oak leave and acorn pattern

    Work in progress pictures:

  •    1903 Colt   

    This was a fairly rough Colt automatic with lots of minor pitting. The owner wanted it dressed up with period scroll. We covered as much pitting as his budget would allow. This turned a gray-pitted pistol into a nice looking period pocket pistol. The work done now makes this automatic look as a nicely maintained pistol from the 1920s.

  •    WIP – FN GP 35 (Hi Power) Update   

    This is an update to the post I shared last week.

    This shows the pistol now fully engraved with relief-carved oak leaves and acorns just waiting for blueing. This is a spectacular handgun.

    The relief carving allows for many light reflecting facets making for an exceptionally beautiful handgun!

    This shows the top of the slide prior to being fully finished out. It shows both the relief carving and the outlines prior to relief.
