Brass Finishing Tools by Kevin Noakes of Bookbindesigns

Kevin had been in the engraving industry for nearly 30 years, working for one of the best known engravers, before setting up in business for himself.

With a passion for detail he enjoys making brass finishing tools in both contemporary and traditional designs to satisfy the needs of book restorers.

After selling his own exceptional bespoke brass finishing tools privately since 2010, Kevin has invested his profits in his company and is able to offer one of the fastest turnarounds in the business.

His company, Bookbindesigns, is constantly working to increase the number of tools in his catalogue.

He also makes superb brass blocks at a fraction of the price charged by mainstream engravers.

 

Being self employed, Kevin does not have the high overheads of the mainstream engravers, and because of that his brass finishing tools are very competitively priced.

Even the finest of lines are perfectly executed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bookbindesigns also provide decorative pallets which are flat rather than curved, this means that when finishing the wrist does not have to travel as far across the book spine as with a curved tool. Rolls are also produced as well as a catalogue of handle letters.

Having brass blocks engraved has typically been a costly business. Bookbindesigns low operating costs means it is now possible to get large brass blocks engraved at very reasonable prices. If you are still reeling from a quote by a main stream engraver, drop us a line, you may be pleasantly surprised.
