My Guests this Thursday, May 19th at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk are Andrea Kennington & Les Bryant, founders and owners of NC Black.
With over 20 years experience working in Metal, Engraving and the Art of Tool Making, three metalsmiths created NC BLACK Company in response to the special needs of miniature smithing, raising, and shell forming by making their own micro-tools to complete intricate commissioned works.
Today, NC BLACK is creating a range of micro-tools for the profession, made by craftsmen for craftsmen. Based in the USA, all products are hand fabricated in North Carolina. NC BLACK Company's specialty products provide the means to form and finish your pieces with reliable instruments for the job. Using high grade tool steel, the company uses traditional engineering, cutting and shaping methods to create fine micro-tools for the trade, including handmade and finished wooden handles for comfort and long life.
