The problem with a lot of makers marks is the absence of a name. When someone finds a really cool knife in their dads attic, they're gonna want to search and find more about it on the Internet, If only to find out how much it's worth.

........agree 100% , many of my orders stem from the name and home-town makers marks stamped or etched on my blades...........

I went back and looked at my mark and realized that while it made sense to me, it might not to anyone else. So I redid it. I still haven't figured out a way to work my name into it, though. Black is the edtched part, white would be the surface of the blade. It would be about an inch across.

Well my mark has always been 'MH' filed into the spine in the center of a vine pattern, the same one for 17 years, then I started 'custom' knives, these had an additional 'Ikisu' etched on the blade, to take the mickey out of a frenchman who ordered a folder 'just like camels' "La Guiolle" (french for 'the knife') ikisu is Swahili, meaning 'the knife' this only goes on blades made to a customers specific design not my run o' the mill knives...

Until I come up with something better, I'm just using my initials in cursive. image.jpgimage.jpg

Here is my maker's mark; It is my initials combined.

Here's my maker's mark, no stamp (yet) so I burn or chip carve it into the wood as of right now.
It actually is not inspired by runes, at the time I was really thinking about maker's marks, but I didn't like any I thought of. When this just by chance showed up on just a simple self handled knife I made... pretty freaky, I thought it was cool though, so I ran with it.

Here it is burnt onto the handle of a dagger I made.

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... laugh.gif/>

Yes, indeed your mark looks a littlebit like a bat...no doubt!

 

Just be careful not to get into trouble with a well-known German knife brand, which keeps the bat indeed as mark for their knives (***just kidding concerning the trouble***) ;-)

PS: For your information - the knife manufactory I meant is Nesmuk - nesmuk.de/en

This is absolutely a good idea. This is about as good of a picture of my mark as I can find. I hot-stamp my mark into my knife blades as shown. The knife shown is a simple hunter type with a full tang. The blade is hand forged from 5160 coil spring from a train car.PC220006.JPG

I posted this one in the show and tell section, but never put it here where it belongs. There isn't much meaning behind why my touch mark is a turtle. I just like turtles :)

Thought I'd just put mine up. It's not too original but it looks nice and simple. I kinda have named myself Wildcat Knives. The back story is my family had only 1 cat when we moved out to Bastrop a few years back. Well, a feral cat had some kittens in the hay barn, and because my family rescues anything within a 5 mile radius, we took them in (shots, spayed, neutered etc). So now I cringe whenever I tell people we have 5 cats. I thought it'd make a great story when people ask me about the logo.

CH.jpg Lucked out and am getting a stamping die laser engraved within the next few weeks. This is the test version the engraver did, reversed reverse.

Up until this last weekend, I was just engraving my logo, but shaky hands (runs in the family) usually made me have to re-do it, so I made my own logo stamp, and used it for the first time! pretty impressed with the stamp, but got a double logo in the blade (doesn't bother me all that much).

It is a bit of a twist on the runes for fire (triangle) Iron (arrow) and sulfur ("T" shape with circles on the ends).
