Day No. 20 – HB

It’s been a bit of a slow week getting through all of the bench drawers, each filled to the brim with beautiful tools. Old ebony and ivory handles on files, hand removers, gravers, hair spring tools… Each piece seems crafted with care, so unique, the mark of the maker so evident.

Today I found a small wooden box, well-loved and well used with the two letter stamps H&B pictured above. In the early days of the shop Dennis marked his work with a simple HB stamp. Later Dennis moved to DH – the D smaller than the H.

Here are some more things from today’s work.
