Jim Blair is a Master Engraver, recognized as such by none less than both FEGA and the Colt Firearms Company. His engraving is highly tailored to his client’s wishes. He normally works with one of three variations of scrollwork – a modified arabesque, banknote or English scroll. However, he will go outside these traditional types of scrollwork to satisfy a client’s wishes, as he can do almost anything in the engraving world. He prefers to give the scroll a life of its own, and usually does just that. He goes where it, and his client, leads him. The accompanying photo is an example of his work. It is a beautiful example of English rose and scroll, a pattern that Purdey is usually credited for developing. Photo by Sam Welch
