Engraving is an obsession of mine. There is something about moving the metal with a graver, creating beautiful light and detail, that I can only liken to writing with a really good feeling pen or cutting paper with good sharp scissors. Except there is pain involved with engraving. After hours of work I am usually left with sharp back pain and blistered hands. But when I am not working I miss that pain. There is something about the pain that lets you know you’ve done a good days work.
