I used a stamp before the laser engraving. I think it has too many letters that are too small and it makes it hard to get it deep enough. After sanding out a couple of my stampings, I came across this company that does the etching.

I don't see how you could get much crisper than the laser. If you'd like, I can have a sample lasered and send it to you.

That’s a very generous offer. Let me hunt around here for someone that does this kind of work first. Thank you.

Here are a few that I finished up this week. First is an EDC with a cocobolo handle and 1084 blade.




This one is a 1084 EDC blade with curly koa.




The last EDC blade is 3/32" 52100 with thumb jimping and a figured walnut handle.




Last is a new gut hook design with a 1084 blade and curly koa for the handle.




I am going to start including a certificate of authenticity with each knife. One of these knives was picked up today and the customer loved the idea of this. I think having it hand written goes well with a hand made knife.



I think my photography is getting better too.

It is so hard to take pictures of shiny objects without glare and distortion. I struggle with taking decent pictures. This bunch of pictures is very good. Nice background and clear handles without the blade being all wonky. Nice job!!

Thanks Dennis. I took some advice from someone here if I remember right, and took these outside, right at sunset in a shadow. I think they are the best I've taken.

Very nice knives, Gene. I just designed a new certificate of authenticity a couple of days ago. I think it adds a personal touch and the client knows he is getting something unique and special.
