Hi all, please see my new makers mark. 

Heres mine, Long time doberman pinscher owner, best breed ever... and now my shop mascot--  

Here's my mark for Appleseed Sharpening Custom Blades. My initials inside an apple:

I like the idea. Mine is a stick-figure raven. I almost always do mine in wood, or in soft metals, rarely in the steel on the blade. This picture is pretty bad, but you get the idea.

I have a stamp, just "CARNECCHIA" in block letters but I haven't been able to get a clean strike on it yet. It always comes out uneven/unreadable and I wind up grinding it out. I tried making a jig/holder but it didn't help much. I know they make a press/holder for this purpose but it is fairly expensive. Does any one have any suggestions? -Justin

Two things that I've used with some success. One is a cheap arbor press. Build a holder for your stamp that fits the end of the post. Then you can position it where you want and smack the post with a hammer. So long as you hold onto everything, you can get multiple hits if you need them.

 

The second is a small jack press in a frame.

 

The problem I have with both of them is this. If you hot stamp, then you have a big depressed area with the stamp in it, and I don't like the look. If you cold stamp (after finishing, say) then you risk bending the blade and marking up both sides, which then have to be fixed.

Not a bad idea at all. When I have time it can be its own stand-alone subforum. I see the main "show us your mark" thread and another for mystery marks in need of identification.

 

Thanks, Geoff!

Here's mine...I designed it to be a monogram, representing my initials (OM). A whole bunch of people, including my wife, have told me it looks like a bat, though... :lol:/>

My stamp is really simple. If I remember correctly its a germanic rune for "P". I just think its a cool symbol.

 

And I can electroetch it also.

Here's my mark. The only picture I have of it is it hiding in some knotwork, since I haven't used it on any metals yet. It's the tvimadur symbol/bindrune. I thought it was a fitting way of incorporating my initials (MM).

Here's mine. Eventually I'd like to get a logo to go with EagleEyeForge, and have a stamp made, but for now I'm sticking with a 3 line S chiseled in by hand, it's worked good everytime so long as I remember the difference in S and Z :o (Yeah, I've done it).

I've been thinking about a maker's mark for a few years now. Oriental theme, scroll, or just my initials, geometric shapes. I just can't make up my mind. My goal this year is to come up with a mark and hopefully in the next month. Jesse

Heres mine, it would be placed on the handle or tang of the item to be marked, and where convinient my name and year of creation would be placed on the ricasso or tang/handle. I was always intrested in having a more ystic theme for my forge.

This is the makers Mark I came up with this summer. It is my initials, and pays tribute to my heritage. I "borrowed" the Ukrainian national symbol, since my great grandfather was a Cossack from Zaporizia, Ukraine (as far as we've been able to trace). There is a lot of history behind the symbol, and it brought a lot of perspective to my family's history, while researching it.
