Folks, Can any of you point me to resources in the U.S. who would be
in the biz of refurbishing old, decorative swords (U.S. Navy
officers’ swords). I have several customers (currently, about 12
families) who are looking for the service in preparation for
commissioning (graduation) of family members from the Naval Academy
What I THINK this entails is re-polishing, retouching engraving,
possibly some rewrapping of hilts, maybe resetting stones, fixing
inlay, or redoing damaged metalwork in the hilt or scabbards.
So… Do any of you do this stuff or know anyone who does? What I
will do is point my clients directly to the leads and let them follow
up directly – since this is highly personalized work, I’m not going
to stay in the middle of it (nor will I take a “cut” on it). I just
want to point the folks to reputable people who can do a great job.
