Default antique inside spoon, bowl and plate rim gravers

Here's a photo of some antique inside spoon. bowl and plate edge gravers that I rarely use. Being so long they are a bit unwieldy to me. All but one (that I sharpened) still have the dull factory face on them meaning these babies were never used. The last time I did an inside spoon I ended up using a straight graver with about a 20 or 25 degree heel. Paid $130 about 12 years ago for the set and have never seen anything like them anywhere else in my life. They are Dixon brand and the long one is Vallorbe. Note the raw brass collets on the wood handles, those were before my time in the field.

Default Re: antique inside spoon, bowl and plate rim gravers

Those are awesome. Would love to have a set for myself.

A good friend is a retired jeweler and these belonged to his father. I'm going to rummage around his shop next to week to see what's tucked away. There's always a great story that goes along with things I unearth there.

Notice the ratcheting system on the back of the middle the graver. The brass collets were engraved with scroll at one time but that has worn off and then been roughed up for better grip.
