    Never tried etching but I'm leaning towards getting a hot stamp made of my maker's mark.

    And later maybe get some etching film with the logo, might be better for finer details like small text.
    Then I can also offer to etch blades already sold.

    I like your mark, well done.

    There are quite a few youtube vids on etching, that may be of interest if you ever go that way as well.

    when you settle on one I will be up for one on Raven, your makers mark deserves to be on my knife as a matter of pride and recognition Just let me know and I will send it back to you to be marked.

    Thanks everyone.
    So sounds like we have a plan then.
    Get hot stamp makers mark ASAP.... Then organise some etchings and gear.

    And I'd definitely like to etch some previous blades I've sold too, as a freebie.

    Hey everyone

    Well I pulled apart the knife I stuffed up.

    I tried heating the blade in an effort to soften or melt the epoxy.
    That almost worked and I was able to push the pins and lanyard tube out.
    But the heat had warped and ruined the scales.

    I figured this was a perfect opportunity to have a crack at what I originally wanted to do and use the Spotted Gum and try to carry the spine filework through to the handle scales.
    Then I thought why not make my own mosaic pin,then I can really say I made the whole knife myself.

    And the end result
    Although its not perfect,some of the filework in the scales dont quite line up with the spine.
    But now I know I can do something like this im keen to try again and do better.

    Well done Leigh , you did say it was a learning curve after all. Good save Mate and some good lessons learned so an absolute win all round I'd say.
