I've been a part time knife maker since '98'ish making liner lock folders and straight knives via the stock removal method. The engraving gear was purchased by the Mrs. when she thought this might be a good hubby-wife team since were were doing the knife show circuit back in those days. She took a couple Sam's classes at GRS to get the basics. She later went on to make some knives of her own . The engraving didn't catch on for her so the gear has sat gathering dust.

I've kept some of the manual hand pieces along with the positioning vise and microscope. The hope that I can play with them when the motivation hits. The air compressor remains because I have uses for the NSK pneumatic rotary hand piece too.

Been enjoying reading the threads here.

Some knife pics of mine:

Thanks troutbox and monk!

The process of going through the gear I found this sample piece that Sam had done back then.
