makers mark

how is the makers mark done like in Lucas Burnley's black and tan post? i dont think its an etch it looks more like an ink stamp on top of the blade instead of biting into the blade.


thanks bill

That's a stencil mark on those blades! That's how it looks when it's done correctly.....mine generally look like dog doo when I try to stencil a blade.....hence the reason I stamp most everything

Hot Stamping a forged blade is the way to go in my opinion, and making your own touchmark is a plus, satisfaction, you did it and it's yours, it will stand out from etched and cold stamped blades.
