Scrimshaw is kind of a long lost art and I would like to bring it back to a more recognized form of art. Like Pyrography there is so much you can do with it. Plus I am still learning this craft and would love to learn more about it myself, so lets get some awesome threads going about it.
I was in a local machinist supply shop awhile ago and noticed that many of them stock machinist scribers that have ultra fine tips. Many where also interchangeable and came in various metals like Tungsten Carbide. The prices varied depending on the metal but I thought it would be a good place for the beginner to find a wide variety of styles to choose from to suit your particular needs. Plus hobby shops and most tool supply stores just do not have the variety of scribers that a machinist supply store would have.
