I think that if you have to engrave knifes ,the classic handpiece is a perfect choice,the nitro maybe is more helpfull to engrave more bigger items like motorcicles parts,or heavy sculpting.

Hi Laguiole,

I agree with Mrthe,the classic would be a good choice since you are also getting the tungsten piston.

Actually choose the classic with this kit ;

For bulino you can use both the P.Coggan point/ template and the V70 - green template.

You will also find the R.Baptiste stippling point very useful ;

All the best

Salut Laguiole, je suppose que je vise juste pour la langue ;-)
Pour les couteaux, pas besoin du G20 le classique et le piston en tungstène c'est assez.
Pour l'affûtage des pointes en carbure, il est impératif de prendre l'affûteur de TW
Pour le reste du matériel, tu as eu les réponses ;-)

Ma commande est passé maintenant, j'ai hâte de m'investir dans le domaine de la gravure. Je n'ai pas demandé le TW pour l'affûtage mais peut-être dans que dans l'avenir je le ferai.

Un back stand peut-il faire le nécessaire aussi pour le dégrossisage des pointes?

Merci M. Baptiste pour les conseils

Tu veras que le TW pour l'affûtage sera vraiment nécessaire avec les pointes en carbure... également recommandées pour les gravures sur acier "couteau"
Bon travail....
