He did a great job? Really nice!
Well I finally got my mark on a few of my blades I've made. Just wondering what u guys think? It's not the original one I wanted but it has a classic look to me.

Chandler, the sheath compliments the knife very nicely. your dad did an awesome job. very nice indeed.

Griffin, the mark looks great, makes a very nice finishing touch to an already good looking knife. adds a nice detali to it. i am curious, one looks darker than the other, what's the difference? BTW, i would still like to have you make a knife for me if you ever get caught up!

Axxe55 I'm getting caught up slowly. I have 5 to do then I'm good to take on some new orders. The black on is etched using ac current it creates a black etching it feels almost like 800 grit sandpaper. The shiny one is done with dc current it cuts in the metal and does turn it dark but not black. After i did it I took it to the buffer and cleaned it up. I wanted that one to be deep and to blend in.

Thank you!
I have to make myself a knife soon I'm gonna etch a pattern down the whole blade just to see if it will work out clean, if it does the I can start doing some really neat images on the blades if people want.
I have 2 to do this weekend for a friend. I'll post pics when done they should look cool.
