#5, Bright-Cutting with a graver


With a modified Onglette #2, Right-Sided bright cutting blade, I am now shearing off metal to leave a very bright cut. These are now on either side of the now newly formed bead/posts.
As you can see on this particular video, all of the metal being removed in one clean cut. Absolute care must be given to administer this cut. No jagged surfaces are permitted, just one very clean cut..When this is lightly polished…Wow!
Just what the customer wanted!..:>)
