To Engrave or Not to Engrave

engravedThere are two kinds of engraving. Machine engraving is a tracing technique and is done by less skilled artisans using an engraving machine. Hand engraving is an art that takes years of learning, practice and artistic talent. Good hand engravers are hard to find but the work done is far superior to machine engraving. The strokes are usually deeper, wider and more beautiful. It takes more time to hand engrave an item and many items can be hand engraved that cannot be done by a machine engraver.
