Billy Bates and Tim Potier discussing the work of engraving different metals and what to use for tools. The way the tools are shaped and sharpened differently as to what you are planing do. Points were given on picking and placing the pattern on the piece.


The art work of metal engraving by Billy Bates really intrigued me as to how detailed a small knife could be. The work on this belt axe added the finishing touches to an excellent piece.
