No engraving job is too small, from a screw, monogram, restoration to a complete gun.
Classically trained under some of the most notable engravers in the world, Geoffroy studied in Liege, Belgium and Gardone, Italy - he received the first prize of Gunsmithing (Basculage) at the Liege School of Gunsmithing. After training, Geoffroy began what would become a 15 year career as the sole Parker Reproduction engraver. During his time with Parker Reproductions, he engraved all of the 'A1 Customs,' Parker's highest-tier (not to be confused with the A1 factory in Japan). Now, Geoffroy works freelance creating artistic, hand-engraved works which have garnered some serious attention and praise. Geoffroy still engraves the old fashioned way - without the use of power tools, acids, or lasers - and it's evident is his precise, intricate work. Utilizing only three main hand tools - a hammer, bruin, and bulino - Geoffroy Gournet has crafted hundreds of richly detailed, perfectly executed engravings which offer their owners a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind piece they will cherish forever.
