ULTIMATE PERSONALIZATION

We have developed a process for etching images and patterns into steel. Our most common etch is the "cracked glass" or "weathered" treatment. Customers can give a concept or theme they would like put onto their knife, and have us create the artwork. You can also bring us a specific piece of artwork you would like used. In most instances any artwork a customer provides can be etched into the blade.

These etchings are permanent. This is not a fragile surface treatment. The etchings are not something that can be easily removed or scratched off. For all intents and purposes these etchings are on there for the life of the knife.

Etching folders is quite common. Just about every folder we have run across can be done. Fixed blades have a few restrictions. If the knife cannot be disassembled there is a chance it cannot be etched. If you have questions about etching your knife, or questions about our etching service in general, please contact us. Prices start at $25.

We have included a few examples of our work here for you to get a better idea of what is possible.
