The Basics

  • Unless otherwise noted, all gravers come pre-shaped with a ground cutting face. Gravers must be sharpened before use. Sharpening can be done manually with a stone or automated with a motorized hone.
  • Flat Gravers have a flat cutting edge with either parallel or slightly tapered sides. They're useful for removing or texturing backgrounds, bright-cutting, block lettering, and cutting consistent width lines for borders.
  • V-Point Gravers have a diamond-shaped face that's like a Square Graver but with a sharper cutting angle. They're used for removing background material, shading, cutting borders and star shapes, and for raising beads for stone setting.
  • High Speed Steel (HSS) gravers strike a balance between cost and durability. They maintain their hardness (temper) better than standard carbon steel and cost less than carbide.
  • Carbide Steel gravers maintain their sharpness longer than any other steel. They are more brittle than carbon steel and hss and are more likely to break or chip if mishandled.
  • GRS Quick Change (QC) gravers are shorter than standard gravers and feature smaller shanks. The shanks fit QC tool holders, which provide fast tool switching between GRS graver handles and power handpieces.
