Electrochemical Etching

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would share this with anyone who is new to knife making, and wants a super easy way to put a nice etched logo or makers mark on their knives.  I use a stencil I got from a real nice fellow named Ernie, at Blue Lightning Stencils, but you can also coat your blade in wax or nail polish and scrape away the bits were you want an etch to happen.  Here is what you need, salt water, a couple wires and a 9 volt battery.  Photos are of my rig, and of the knife I etched.  Its for someone in a local Beard Club, I've done a couple knives for these guys, and they love that I can etch their logo into the blade.
