    Watch Engraving

    I'm kinda lucky in that respect my father is a gunsmith so whatever I can't handle will go to him and as far as jewelers go I myself am a repair jeweler full time to grow my other skills and know several of the local shops in my area still fairly new to the engraving game but it is my main...

    Watch Engraving

    I feel like the answer would be the same for gun engravers some prefer to have all quality controll aspects covered by themselves and not leave anything to chance by someone else and others would rather have someone more competent than themselves work on stuff that they are not too familiar...

    selling engraved firearms

    I'm about to finish up a piece that I am just refinishing and waiting on a leather guy to make a case for it but was wondering, how do y'all sell pieces that you decide to work on out of the blue from your personal collection?
