Engraved to last.

Each order is individually prepared by hand and laser engraved to meet our strict quality standards.

Laser annealed to perfection.

Unlike etching or rotary engraving, annealing minimises the amount of material removed from the tool.

This means that tools don't lose their structual integrity and have a higher degree of corrosion resistance compared to deeper engraving.

Ultra high quality artwork

Advanced engraving that produces amazing vector artwork without any additional colour or printing.

Choose from our range of vector based designs, or upload your own.

We're at the forefront of laser based design, and our investment in fiber MOPA laser equipment allows us to modify the surfaces of various types of material, producing effects such as colour and texturisation.

What our clients are saying

Choose from three levels of engraving depth to achieve the perfect look for your tool.

Protective Coatings

We offer a range of protective coatings and finishes to suit all environments. 

Choose from:

  • Polyvine Crystal Clear Laquer, a water-based, non-toxic protective coating to prevent damage and corrosion in

  • Rustins Polyurethane Coating, a heavy-duty, hard-wearing clear coat.

  • ACF-50, an industry-proven coating to help prevent rust and oxidation. For products that will be regularly exposed to the elements, especially tools, we recommend choosing this option.


Answering your questions

How long does delivery take?

Delivery times (from dispatch) :

  • Royal Mail First Class – 1-2 days
  • Special Delivery – 1 day
  • Second Class – 2-3 days

Can you use the tools for work?

You can indeed!



We highly recommend choosing a protective coating option in this case, such as polyurethane or lacquer. The key difference between the two is a lacquer is slightly clearer and lighter, while polyurethane is stronger, denser, and slightly less transparent.


Lacquer remains the best option for maintaining the highest level of clarity, Polyurethane will slightly raise the surface and be more visible.


Our engravings are very resilient to the environment they are exposed to while working. Proper care should always be employed, as with any tool. Clean well after use, using non-abrasive cleaning products and oil using light mineral oil or anti-corrosion compound such as ACF-50/WD-40 afterward.

Is there any ink or printing used?

We do not use ink, paint, or printing in our engravings. As standard, all engravings are cleaned and oiled for protection with or without protective coating.

How long will an engraving last?

Our engravings are designed to last the lifetime of the tool. Heavy abrasion and use over time may gradually reduce the overall quality of the engraving, in line with the rest of the surface of the tool.

Guaranteed not to diminish for at least one year. Engravings can only be diminished or removed vis harsh sanding or mechanical removal. 

Working tools

For tools that have engravings coated in Polyurethane or Lacquer, we guarantee the engraving not will not fade in normal use for 6 months.

We do not offer a set guarantee for uncoated working tools as there are too many factors that we cannot account for such as exposure to materials, chemicals, and damage.

As with any carbon steel tool, it’s critical to properly care for them. Regular cleaning and oiling will keep them in optimal condition.

We can only guarantee the quality of the engraving as the tools are produced by our manufacturing partners. If any issue arises regarding the actual tool itself, we’ll be more than happy to get in touch with them on your behalf to resolve any issues.

What Does Engraving a tool Entail?

Engraving involves the process of etching designs, patterns or text onto a surface creating an visually appealing mark. This traditional art form has been practiced for centuries. Has been utilized to adorn items ranging from jewelry to firearms. By applying this technique to spanners not does it enhance their value but also makes them easily recognizable.

Types of Engraved Tools

  1. Text Engraving

Text engraving entails inscribing names initials, dates or messages onto the surface of the spanner. Whether its intended as a gift for someone or, as a means of branding text engraving adds that personalized touch that sets the spanner apart.

  1. Vector Design Engraving

Design engraving allows for patterns, logos or decorative elements to be etched onto the spanners surface. This customization option enables individuals to showcase their style and preferences through their tools.

Vector engraving involves using the fiber laser to follow precise paths or vectors to create designs on a material’s surface. This is different from raster engraving, where the laser scans back and forth across the surface to create shaded areas. In vector engraving, the laser follows the outlines of shapes, texts, or patterns, creating clean and sharp lines with uniform depth.
