Chip Merchant


Chip and his family live in Beavercreek, Oregon, where he enjoys building bits and spurs and various other silver pieces. Chip has been blessed with good mentors and making good friends along the way. Chip attended two Ernie Marsh workshops and an engraving class with Diane Scalese. Chip is extremely thankful to have been given the knowledge and tools from these expert craftsmen. Chips goals are to create traditional one of a kind pieces that are of exceptional quality. Chip challenges himself to improve on each piece he designs, engraves and creates. Function and quality craftsmanship are the two elements that Chip strives to have in every piece he creates so that the gear he builds will be passed down for many generations to come.
