ENGRAVING.


        Engraving is surface decoration, usually used to inscribe
                        lettering, but it may be used to put any design on
                        the surface.  In engraving a small cutting chisel,
                        called a graver or scorper, is used to cut small
                        channels into the surface of the metal.  If the
                        graver is well polished, it leaves a very polished
                        cut.  This is sometimes called bright cutting.
