    Hand graving tool

    Hi,
    Continuing in my engraving tools series, here is a couple of little hand chisels for engraving :
    I don't know if there is a precise technical name for this tool (please Ken, correct).
    In French, there is one, it is an "échoppe".

    I made them out of Cherry for the handle, and HSS jig saw blades reground.

    Notice the flat part on the handle, it prevents the tool from rolling on the table, but also serves as an index while the tool is hold in the hand :


    Two different shapening, one on the left has a "fingernail" shape and the other has a V shape.


    Here is how it should be used, the thumb is always used towards the workpiece to provide control and avoid any big scratch across the surface


    Of course, this is theory, and I am far from being skilled enough to provide any advice about how to use it, I just read a lot about engraving
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Thanks Christophe! I've added your Engraving Chisels to our Metalworking and Woodworking categories, as well as to your builder page: Christophe Mineau's Homemade Tools.

    FWIW, I'd call these "palm chisels". Beautiful work, as always!

    Your receipt:

    Thanks friends,
    Ken, you can change the title of the post if it does not sound correct.
    I actually found a nice demo video , it seems the correct name is "hand push graver" , they also use the French word "onglette" which means "little fingernail".

    Here it is,


    Next step is the vise ! (notice how it is the workpiece that turns and not the tool).
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Hi Bridger,
    Are you French speaking ?
    Burin is the French name for the hammered chisel, which is another engraving technique.
    Is burin used in English?
    thanks for the comment
    Christophe
    Cheers !

    That work you posted is something else, Hotz. I'm sure Christophe will find inspiration from them.
