Charles was born in England and started work for the world-renowned gunmaking company of James Purdey & Sons in March of 1980. He worked in the factory for five years before becoming a freelance engraver and continuing to work for Purdey's in a sub-contract capacity for the next fifteen years until his move to the U.S.A.

He has done commissions for almost all of the Best British gunmakers including Holland & Holland, Greener, Churchill, McKay Brown, Watson Bros., as well as individuals. 

Since his move to America he has done work for Tate Gunmakers, a commission on the re-issued Schofield revolver for Smith & Wesson, many double rifles and shotguns for John Rigby & Co. of Paso Robles, as well as many custom rifles for various custom rifle makers and, again, numerous individuals.

No engraving job is too small, from a single screw to a full gun, Charles can do the custom work you desire.
