More engraving....outside the box, on shotguns
I just wanted to share a few more examples of extraordinary gun engraving. These pieces are so far from traditional work that they are establishing a new high-water mark in a field that is many centuries old. As you look at these, bear in mind that all of this imagery was created in steel, with chisels, scrapers, and other very tiny tools....all by the hand and eye of a master craftsman.
