Could somebody give me advice as to a good (cheep) way of etching metal?
I have been making swords for a while now, and would like to etch a small logo and serial number onto each new one I sell, What would be a good way of going about this?
I assume I would do it in two hits (one for the logo and one for the serial) but more than this I have no idea. I've read a little about acid and laser etching but without knowing much about it it's difficult to do much further research. I have considered manually engraving but I don't have an overly steady hand, and I don't think I could manage the logo flawlessly every time.
Any ideas or suggestions?
