As a member of Law Enforcement and a US Navy Veteran, I know the value of a truly handcrafted piece. Store bought items are nice, but they are mass produced, machine made, and don't have that custom touch. My business started as a hobby when I made a custom and personalized badge for a dear friend (100% by hand). It wasn't long before more and more people wanted one of their own. I don't make my plaques, paracord and rings for the money. These truly handcrafted items are my Legacy.
