Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!
Dustin

Traditionally, one of the most prized methods of dressing up an article was to have it hand engraved. Engraving is a skill which takes a long time to master as well as continued practice to maintain a high level of skill. Consequently, there have always been few practitioners of the art, driving up the cost and limiting the availability of hand engraving.

Fortunately for instrument work, the materials to be engraved are relatively soft and easy to work, unlike the steel of a fine gun or the fine metals in jewelry. Pearl and abalone take engraving very nicely and the process adds a tremendous three-dimensional effect to the finished piece. With a few simple tools, almost any style and pattern of engraving can be accomplished. The techniques are simple, the tools are simple. All one needs is a little time and practice (and good instruction) to be able to create works of art with engraving.

Please Note:

HANDLE IS INCLUDED, simply attach the blade to use. 
• All engraving tools are made of high-quality HHS (high-speed steel), except the SPENLS which is made from Swiss steel.
