Default My first share. Glock Stainless Slide

I've been engraving for about a year now, but this is the first time I've posted pics of my work. Having the right tool really helped.

I had major problems due to the hardness. However, this is my third stainless slide and I have worked out a couple trick. Both of these tips for working with stainless were found on this engraving forum.

1. Dub your graver
2. I move my grave further into the holder when sharpening. From the standard to exactly 1". Basically a steeper face.
