What exactly are you looking for? Training weapons or presentation weapons? And what weapons?

Wood gets "carved", only metals are "engraved".

Thanks Dave... my bad, custom wood weapons that are "carved". The weapons would be for presentation only. And lets just start with short staffs.... escrima, for the sake of this post.

If you're doing sticks, you might just look for the raw materials and make some for the gifts. Shaping Escrima sticks is seriously awesome, and really puts something special into it.

I made a pair for one of my instructors and I think I spent about 2 hours on the burning. I like to think of it as painting with flames ;).

MT member Master Jay Penfil works closely with GM Peter Carbone who is such a craftsman. You can PM Master Penfil and he can provide details.

Try Philippines. There's a province there - Pampanga, I believe that makes such exquisite carving and you can choose what kind of wood to use.
