About me

Introduction I make my living as a metal engraver working on guns, knives, custom fountain pens, running my engraving school and building the occasional high end fly rod. My father is a machinist and a top rate knifemaker. Growing up in his shop has given me the machine and tool skills as well as the understanding of craftsmanship needed to do the artwork I now do.
