Default Truehand Engraving

Hello Pipers,
My name is David Davidse and I run Truehand Engraving here in Ontario, Canada.
I specialize in hand engraving bagpipe mounts, shields etc.
Please have a look at my websites www.truehand.com and www.bagpipemounts.com for more information.

Thanks,
Dave

Everyone :

David is the fellow that (thankfully) was able to reproduce the silver pattern of a 1906 MacDougall presentation bagpipe for me...

Have a look at the original...

Sorry...please refer to the photos on David's website for ideas of his bagpipe mounts.


This silver is going to be used on the new pipe Jerry Gibson is going to be making for me, which I expect will be completed in Oct-Nov of this year.

There will be pictures with close ups on the Gibson website for all to see & in the event anyone else wants to order a pipe with silver-work like this, Dave will be quite pleased (I'm sure) to make certain I'm not the only fellow with a set of these out there.

David is a gentleman & a pleasure to do business with.

But of course...you wouldn't expect anything less from a Beneteau sailor. ;)

P.

Paul:
Please do not link directly to photos I have taken and posted on my website without my permission, and certainly not without credit or any form of acknowledgement. I'd like these removed now please. There is a rather unseemly story behind the use of this silver pattern that I'm sure we would both prefer I not get into here.
