Default Custom Dragon Engraved Handgun Slide

Here is a project I've been working on it's a custom engraved handgun slide.
I've seen custom engraving done on firearms before done with a laser or by
hand, especially with this level of detail. In this project I used a rotary
engraver a vision engraving and routing system
VE 810 engraver to engrave the handgun slide.
Although it's a rotary engraver the method I used was diamond scratch
also called diamond drag.

Thanks! The dragon design translated from paper to stainless steel better than I thought it would. I'm really happy with the end result.

Here is a video of the handgun slide being engraved. The project was used to
do a marketing type video, so if it breaks any forum rules my humble apologies
in advance. I just thought it was something members would be interested in seeing.
Here is the Custom Gun Engraving video.

I think it looks good. Im sure it would be cheaper to get it done that way and more people would be able to get it done if it was cheaper. Nice work defenitly.
