Engraving, for Roland Baptiste, is a passion passed on to him by his father.  As a young child Roland was intrigued by the sound of hammer and chisel from his father's engraving workshop.  It was thus quite natural that he would be directed towards studying engraving at the School of Arms manufacture at Liege.  He graduated in 1993 after having refined his talent during years at an occupation which enabled him to unceasingly improve the control of his tools of engraving.  He decided finally to devote his time entirely to the art of engraving.  He was determined to preserve his freedom of expression and creativity which led him to refuse to yield to the constraint of manufacturing in series, even for famous makers.  He preferred to turn to certain arms manufacturers and private individuals with whom he was privileged to be creative when working on projects.  He has worked mainly with contacts from France, Germany and Belgium creating fine weapons to achieve the highest quality which a Master can reach.  The signature of his work is found in the details of his work.  He has been present at various shows  such as Rambouillet, Country Show, Knives in festival with Nontron, Eghezée and Amay.  He has always been pleased to explain the techniques and subtleties of his work.  When you meet, it take a student only a few moments to share his vision of the most beautiful weapons of hunting.
