Preserving the art form of the original hobo. 


Master engraver Aleksey Saburov specializes in the art of making new hobo coins. A Russian living in New York, he creates twenty-first-century hobo coins by utilizing popular imagery, legends, demons, beliefs, and individual commissions to make unique works of micro art engraved on genuine early twentieth-century five-cent pieces.

Corum now utilizes Saburov’s unique talents and the interesting history of hobo nickels to co-create a limited edition of Coin Watches.

   Hobo Nickels  •  ​Knife Engraving  •  Jewelry Engraving  •  Watches   
  •   Hand-engraving on collectible coins, Hobo Nickels, knives, time pieces and jewelry. Miniature bas-relief in metal, the true coin style, dimensional art on a wide range of themes: historical motifs, traditional hobo engravings, portraits, profiles, erotica and almost anything you can imagine on a coin. Hobo nickels are a fantastic investment, as they are a true collectible item, individually carved, signed by the artist and numbered. In retrospect, their value continuously increases as Hobo Nickel collectors and investors drive up the value of this form of art. As a master engraver with five years of education in metal works and jewelry craft in one of the best European institutes, along with a decade-long career in high-end jewelry crafting, I feel exceptionally proud of every one of my Hobo Nickels and engraved knives. This is true passion and time-proven professionalism in designing and successfully executing custom orders in metal.
