im getting a stencil made so that i can etch a logo onto my blades. i already do this now, but i just do my initials when requested to put a mark. it is usually a pretty expensive process to have your artwork made into a stencil, but a fellow blacksmith is doing a few people favors and i am one of them.....as long as i can get my design to him by the 19th.
so here is my dilemma......
what do you guys think would make a good mark?
the only thing i NEED to have on there is my name.
however i want something that will make my knives stand out that much more.....when people search for me as a maker years down the road i want them to be able to glance at the mark and KNOW its a Parker Custom.
i have found my families crest from ireland, and i think it would look pretty nice, however it does have alot of lines and the more lines there are the more chances for a fuck up.
anyway, what do you all think?
any input would be much appreciated.
