As of Late January 2013, I am unavailable for commissions - I am serving a year overseas and will return in February of 2014.
I am an American engraver and FFL located in Davenport Washington just outside of Spokane. I began engraving in 2005 and enjoy working on early Colt automatics. I silversmith and cut gems with a focus on Australian opals. I have been enlisted as an active duty service member in the US armed forces since 1993. HTandB is short for "Hammered, Twisted and Bent", my business name in Washington state. I will often sign smaller pieces and knives with an interlocking "HTB". Firearms are normally signed "R. Skiles, Engr."
