Here is a pair of Smith & Wesson Model 926 Airweight Polished Aluminum handcuffs. Engraved by Domingos Joaquim, One of Smith & Wesson’s in-house factory engravers from 1978-1982. These were engraved for a long time S&W employee in 1980, and from whom I acquired them from.
Domingos Joaquim, born in 1948 and passed away in 2012, was a Master Firearms Engraver, a true artist, and performed his artistry of engraving for over forty years. He was an in-house engraver with Smith & Wesson Firearms Co. between 1978 and 1982, & was considered the best in his field. For many years he was a self-employed Master Engraver and has engraved for Hollywood celebrities, musical artist and individual customers throughout his career.
I’ve posted these for you to see and enjoy artistry of engraving at its finest.
Wow! What an awesome, one of a kind, piece! Thank you for sharing this with us! What a piece of Smith and Wesson history.
