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 my 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.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
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.
