The art of the engraver is older than gun-making itself. Since man first fashioned tools he has had the urge to mark his personal identity on that which he has made. It is probably true to say that nowhere else has the art of the engraver found such an outlet as in the embellishment of firearms.
From the simplest scrollwork through intricate tracery to the mastery of inlays in precious metals, the engraver has something to suit every taste.
Here on these pages are illustrated just some of the patterns possible from the master engravers of Krieghoff. The K-80 and K-20 are available in a wide choice of patterns to suit every taste and pocket. If your taste is a little more exotic or if you prefer something different, a Custom Engraving pattern can be arranged with one of our Master Engravers.
If your interest is in an individual engraving pattern please contact us directly. We can arrange for you to visit the Krieghoff factory to discuss your requirements with one of our Master Engravers, or, if you have something specific in mind, a sketch can be prepared for your approval.
