It only took 8 hours for this guy to hand engrave the bottom of his iPhone bezel.

You can only imagine how long it would take to do it all.

Engraving my iPhone is something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time now, the plain metal border was so tempting. I’ve searched the net, but haven’t yet found any hand engraved iPhones. There are a lot of laser engraved ones and cases, but to me laser engraving is not really a true engraving. So someone must start with the handmade.

For starters I engraved the bottom part of it, so when I did screw up, it wouldn’t be too noticeable. The metal seems to be some kind of stainless steel and a very tough one too. I broke many-many graver tips during the process and at least 1/4th of the time was spent on re-sharpening the gravers.

    “The metal seems to be some kind of stainless steel and a very tough one too” Mine feels like plastic, scratches like it too. This would be cool, surprised I haven’t seen the laser etching guy at the mall doing these.

  • That is Wicked, he is very talented, that is a great way to show off his talent!
