Chapter 5

(12) Applying maker's mark

(13) The finished knife with certificate
Once the handle is finished I can apply my mark to the blade. A mask of my logo is taped to the blade and an electric etching device is pressed to it(12). In a few seconds the mark is burned into the blade.

The final step is filling out the certificate of origin(13) which tells the owner what materials and processes were used in the creation of the knife, when it was made, and of course, who made it.
