Looks like several members have recommended doing some "KnifeDogTags". I can do titanium or stainless. Whatever you like. Let me know what you would like them to look like and what logo cut into them. Room left to engrave? I'm all ears.
:duh:

Oh I had a thought---thats dangerous. What about making them bone shaped like a name tag for a collar? huh1

I'm open on design but I like the idea of leaving room to engrave/personalize.

Good idea.

Regular and Bone shape would be good. I think (which is not a good thing) that the forum Logo would be great!

With all due respect...thats ghey:)

Ti sounds good...and i think T. should pick the design because he is the lead dog....and it will save a lot of jibberjab. :)

?????? can the water jet engrave or does it have to blo thru ??????

standard dog tag in Ti.

I have spent some time looking for some logo art and have signed up to 2 clip art services already. I'll have something by the weekend I think.

We will have regular editions but I want the first one to be right.

You could sell these for Key chains and raise money for the site? just a thought. I still keep my dog tags on my key ring, it helps me to remember who I am sometimes.

I think some variation of this patch that Tracy posted would be cool. Goes with the military feel of the DT too. Even if it's just the head and the words Knife Dogs.

We are going to use the head and name for the first edition tags. I just sent it off to Dave.

We will issue more as we develop multiple Logo and Images for KnifeDogs.com

Heres a preview. They will be a 2 tag set. Made from .040" Ti and a tumbled finish. I think this first limited edition run will be 200 sets. Tracy, you need a sign-up list for these huh1

this thread is as good as any until they are in hand and ready to ship...

There is no price yet cause we haven't even figured out the cost yet.

Soon as we get that in place, we'll get a new thread going.

I want to add that this would make a great T-shirt design.
-John

BossDog
09-08-2009, 11:27 AM
OK....how would you like to see a shirt done with this?

I normally don't wear any printed Tshirts so I'm not going to be real good at this.

I would put the dog on the with Knife Dogs under it big size. Then put a small, pocket size version on the front.


Highest quality black pocket Tshirts with pre-stressed (washed out looking) printing. The printing would look like it had been washed 20 times.

suggestions?

Just noticed, the 'N' in the top "KNIFE" has a little glitch in the leg, you may want to fix that. Corel decided to put some extra nodes in there for some reason...

Wow, those are cool!!!

I was wondering if a non-military guy wearing dog tags might be disrespectful to our servicemen (no matter what's on them) but considering a bunch of guys that have served our country are posting to this thread... it must not matter. ;)

What is the "picture" part of it though? Is that a silhouette of a dog? I showed it to my buddy and he said, "The tags with the forum name is cool, but what the hell is on the second one?"

Just throwing it out there as food for thought. Please don't ban1 me. unsure

Nick, don't worry about it. We military type don't get offended when civilians wear tags. Of course, some of us do make fun of the "Blinged" tags on the wanna be gangsters. Heck, I even had a set of mil-spec tags made for each of my kids. They wear them proudly on thier collars.

Okay, cool. cool 1

When I was a kid I always wanted to wear my Grandpa's dog tags from the Korean War, or Dad's from his run in the navy... but they always said I'd lose them. I'm sure they were right. :o lol

Dave is cutting these right now.


We are cutting 150 sets of these.

The price will be $20 for the set. They will be tumbled to debur and smooth the edges and then sand blasted. The set includes a 30" beaded chain for a necklace. You can cut that length down and make a key chain with it if you like. I will also throw in a your color choice of silicon rubber silencers. The colors are here. (http://www.usaknifemaker.com/store/knifedogscom-forum-merchandise-c-85.html)

A couple things to note. These are .040" Titanium, not inexpensive aluminum. They are waterjet cut. The cutting time is over 8 hours for a 150 pieces. These aren't laser images, they are cut outs and there is a pair of them, not just a single dog tag.

This is Dave's picture. He says Beretta not included..


You can go here and pre-order: KnifeDogs.com dog tags (http://www.usaknifemaker.com/store/knifedogscom-dog-tags-inaguarel-limited-edtion-of-150sets-p-1728.html)
