This is a great kit for people who are serious about learning to engrave. Starting with a solidly built Case folder, we apply a beautiful scroll design by Tira Mitchell. We apply the pattern using a proprietary method that is both durable and easy to remove once you are done engraving. This makes it easy to customize an engraving or correct for mistakes without leaving markings on the project that would be hard to remove when you are done engraving.
Along with the folder, you get the graver you need to engrave. For use with an EnSet or any other power assisted engraving system, this square graver blank is made specifically to cut stainless steel. It will not fracture like a carbide, nor will it dull as fast as a typical high speed steel graver.
To shape and sharpen the graver, we include instructions and an Engraver.com Graver Tip model. The resin model makes it easy to see what your graver tip should look like after you shape and sharpen it.
Before you cut your the main project, we also include a mild steel practice plate with the same pattern. This plate will give you a chance to test your graver and warm up your skills before cutting the folder. The practice plate’s steel is a little softer than the stainless steel, but it is still a great way to work out kinks before cutting your project.
Finally, we also provide an unblackened Study Casting of an engraved practice plate with Tira’s design. The plate shows how Tira shaded her design and can be used as a pattern guide if the pattern gets obscured while you work on it.
Beyond this kit, engravers will need an EnSet or other power assisted engraving system, a means of holding the folder like a ball vise, and/or fixtures to hold/protect the project while engraving, and a shaping/sharpening system to sharpen your graver.
