    Hey Guys, well after my first attempt at engraving a blade, I went out and got a pen adapter for my Dremel and some engraving diamond bits. I am still learning how to use the different bit shapes and figuring out what effects they make. for my second attempt I free hand one of the drawing that I made last week. this time I scanned it on a clear sticker and applied it to the blade. traced out the lines, and after it was trying to fill it up and give it some dimension and texture. One thing about the Dremel pen...yes its a lot stronger than the small 25.00 bucks engraving pen I got...but man it vibrates like crazy, after 3 hours of engraving...your hand gets num...hope you guys like it.
    cheers!
    P.S. for those wondering what it is...its suppose to be a eagle looking over its shoulder. :D Still have to engrave that part, but right now cant feel my hands! :confused:

    Very cool. If the blade was etched the contrast would be striking.

    That bird looks so serious. found a package of stencils in a box of goodies that you may want to try out.

    Armour Products
    Rub"n"etch glass stencils.

    Originally designed for glass etching but I bet they should work with an etching machine to give you a outline too trace with the engraver

    Hi Dan, yeah was planning on doing something like that, the blade is not H.T. yet, so I'm hopping that once clean up is done some discoloration will stick and make it pop, if not ill try the vinegar bath and see what that does.
    Cheers

    Thanks John, that looks cool....Right now I have just been freehanding,...but guessing if I am short on ideas on day, stencils can come in really handy!
