All photos of finished pieces are now shot using a Nikon D3300 and Nikkor macro lens.  A great camera for the money that shoots small metallic objects in great closup detail.  There are no fictional Photoshopped images or CAD renderings here of stuff that does not exist in the real world. ;o)

Facebook business and personal pages are gone .. adios, hasta la vista, sayonara, bon voyage'.  Initially created as a real-time extension to this "On The Bench" page, that has now moved to Instagram where there are simply photos and how-tos (without the drama!).  Time is a valuable, limited resource that needs to be invested in creating the highest quality work.   Please join me on Instagram by clicking the little button below or at the top right corner of this homepage.   Thank-you.

Vintage Sterling Silver Solingen (Made in West Germany) Pen Knife...

These were fantastic quality knives.  I had a bunch of them "new in box" stashed away and this is the last of them going out this week.  The quest to replace my stash of made in USA, UK or Europe sterling pen knives continues in order to have special gifts on hand for inquiries of all occasions.  These are very difficult to find with Victorinox currently being the only quality maker on the planet remaining.

Having some spare time fun engraving this Tiffany & Co. sterling silver men's roller ball purchased at the Copley Plaza store in Boston.  After working closely with this under a microscope, it is truly a fantastic quality pen and a pleasure to work with.  I can't wait to finish it and shoot more photos!!!

"Lex Talionis" theme hammer. 

  Brass hammer head and stainless twisted handle made by Jacob Smith of St. Cloud, MN.   Heavily sculpted in ornamental acanthus and American style scroll and a fun personal project that will be mounted on my Harley.

"Lex Tallionis" translated from Latin is the Law of Retaliation and the Roman numerals CXCVI correspond to Law 196 of the Code of Hummurabi: "If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out. (An eye for an eye)

14mm, sculpted titanium with wide (1.75mm) 22k gold borders engraved with classic triple running wheat. 

This was a huge ring with a lot of surface area and perfect for something a little more creative in the gold.  Photographed with a vintage full brass 12GA shotgun shell.

I lost my best and closest friend...

Mila was my whole world.  She was full of love and life.  She always had to be around people and had to say hello to everyone.  I raised her from a pup to be better than I  and she was.
