I don't make stencils for sale. I purchased mine from Ernie at http://www.erniesknives.com/ It's been a while and I don't remember the exact cost but I got several each in two different sizes. Properly taken care of they last a long time. I've marked probably 20 blades with the same stencil and it's still good. Send an email inquiry to Ernie and he can give you all the info. If you need some design help let me know and I'll do whatever I can.What does a stencil like that cost and how long will it last just trying to weigh my options I understand if you don’t wanna disclose that info but I’m just trying to get a ballpark idea
The design you have is simple and will etch well but people won't be able to find you. They will have no way of knowing SF stands for South Forge They may run a Goggle search looking for Steven Farmer or any SF they can think of.Awesome thanks ..... this is what I have my name is to long and I kinda wanted something simple so I came up with south forge and this is what I came up with been thinking of coming up with something a little more but I kinda like stuff simple and to the point ?View attachment 72165
Last time I had him make a stencil it was $60. I forget how many stencils that comes with, but I get so many blades done per stencil, I don’t even worry about it. Figure if you get 6 stencils(I know it’s at least that many), and you get 10 blades per(I’ve done 10 easy per stencil), you’re paying $1 per makers mark. Pretty dandy!What does a stencil like that cost and how long will it last just trying to weigh my options I understand if you don’t wanna disclose that info but I’m just trying to get a ballpark idea
Thanks Casey. That’s great info.
First decide how large you want the mark to be. The size will dictate whatThis is a great thread. I'm getting close to making knives that I'd be willing to claim as my own and would like to get a stencil. I'm retiring at the end of the year after 38 years at NASA. I'd like my stencil to have a Rocket for sure and maybe the words Rocket Forge. I'm not sure how my name would fit in there or if it's necessary buy maybe my initials D.B. Any idears?
