    L R Harner They call me "Butch" Knife Maker or Craftsman

    had to order some and must give high marks for www.img-electromark.com
    had to order a set for deker and 2 for myself and then on top have it all sent to J for the JD super knife

    in the talking their was the question of what would the makers like to see from them

    i brought up the need for proto or first run stencils also maybe a few of the more used steel names within out having to pay for the art fee

    what other stuff would you like to see them work on as there trying to build more knife maker friendly website and following

    deker MIA

    I'd like to see some "standard sets" of things useful to knifemakers.

    • Simple High Carbon Types (1095, 1084, 1080, 1070, W-1, O-1 would make a good 6 stencil set)
    • CPM Steels (CPM154, CPM3v, CPM10v, CPMD2, etc)
    • Special Run Markings ("Limited Edition", "Prototype", "Test Blade", etc)
    • A Yearly "Year" Stamp

    You know, stuff like that :)

    Shoot her an email Stephen - she is usually pretty prompt.

    Don't forget about making them. Text stuff is pretty easy to make yourself (hey, if this idiot can do it :D). Mickley has a tutorial on his site --

    I have a few of that type here
    I figured the bangers normally hot stamped so I didn't get any of those steel types.

    Great Idea Tracy.

    I have sets like that too for Different Projects.

    I have a big file because of all of the O.E.M. work we do.

    I am finding that customers do like to have the steel type marked on the knife.
