Hand engravers use a v-grooved cutting tool which has a moulded hand grip at the top. The hand engraver cuts into the surface of the metal which may be silverware, silver plated items, brass, pewter, jewellery, watches, rings, lighters etc by applying pressure to the object being engraved. Most engravers mark out the area to be worked on before the engraving, others work free hand. Sometimes a vice is used to hold smaller objects.
