The Craft Of Gun Engraving Lives On With Eastern Idaho Cowboys
The art of gun engraving is alive and well in eastern Idaho thanks to a few dedicated cowboys.
More than 50 years ago Dean Philbrick of Irwin, Idaho began to study gun engraving with a mentor. Now, through the Idaho Commission on the Arts’ Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program, Phillbrick himself now mentors aspiring engravers, helping ensure a storied art tradition lives on.
