Making gravers

Recommended Posts

Yes, more info please. I also TOTALY get the HSS aspect of gravers. Really is a simple thing to understand that the steel needs to not loose its hardness when being sharpened.

I'm interested ! I've been practicing filework and the engraving can compliment that as well.

Thanks for sharing,
Dick

OK guys, I'll get started on a "simple" tutorial..

In the meantime, you can get started by studying this link for the Lindsay sharpening templates: http://www.engravingschool.com/private/Lindsay%20Sharpener.htm

There's also a good video on the same page.

I finished the tutorial and hosted it over on Bladesmith's Form.

It's titled Simple Engraving for Knifemakers, here's the link: http://forums.dfoggknives.com/index.php?showtopic=24166&pid=227557&st=0&#entry227557

Hope it helps!

That forum being defunct, this tutorial is now being hosted elsewhere; a web search will find it.
