Makers marks

Recommended Posts

After a few false starts and patterns I finally finished my mark! Thought it was appropriate since I make mostly hunting/outdoor-type knives.

This is my mark .....an L and a J ......and sometimes I put in a groove depending on the type of knife

Just finished making my mark, it is a monkeys foot. I don’t have my forge set up right now so I can’t test it on steel yet.DD06C5C0-DF07-4542-A9D1-FDC8241BDEFA.jpeg

I chose to go with a nameas opposed to a glyph on reasonable advice about customers preference.20180404_161747-1224x1632.jpg

This has been a struggle for me, the majority of my 30 knives went out unmarked.

I would prefer to etch myself, but couldn't find anybody that makes the little masks.

Also had another (better?) idea for a name, but Gerhard Gerber Knives will have to do.....

After a false start I found a small company that does fine work with a laser, this is what I settled on:

I got mine when starting out from Ernie.

Haven't used it much since I started engraving mine. His are a very good product. I would recommend him to whoever wants to etch their own...

The first photo is etched using his mark.

The second is engraved using an electric CNC engraving tool.

By "little masks", do you mean stencils? If so, sign shops can make them.

Thanks for the suggestions, I checked out Ernie's site, will make a plan as soon as I have a way to make (and receive) international payments.

heres mine. the only thing i want to do is put my name on the other side of the blade, so it has a recognizable logo, but also a name to go with it. my only thing is i dont like big script on a blade, so finding a stencil small enough is pretty damn hard.
