Engraved

 

Many probably remember my old page Victorinoxpage.com, i had a knife engraved in Switzerland for my page. Today there are many possible places to get a knife engraved or personalized. This is not new in history and also her in Norway we have a tradition with engraved knives.

It gives a much stronger impression with a Swiss Army Knife engraved than other brands.

For the Kon-Tiki movie a Wenger EvoWood was used and for scouts also an EvoWood 10 was used, this was laser engraved in Norway.

The nailclipper i got engraved in Norway. For many years Victorinox and Wenger knives was used by companies but then the China knives entered the marked, this i feel is not only a bad signal to a person it is sad. Then i have noticed the last years that the SAKs are back and more popular again.

In history here we have in the early 20s many knives with norse inspiration(silverwork made here) from Germany, these are very interesting knives. But also up until today many different silver knives got made as gifts with engravings.

 

 I did some research on the internet on wood materials that are laser engraving friendly. Walnut is one of them but it requires some harder power setting for deep engraving. It is considered to be a hardwood.

I noticed on one of my EvoWoods 17 that the texture of the wood is a bit different and I believe this piece is extra hard. The laser got a bit trouble to make the emblem and name. Still a nice knife!

 

It is so with wood that depending on what part of the heartwood or place it comes from that it will be different in texture and how hard it is.

Greetings from Hungary! Did you know that the head curve "inspired" the Spyderco Hungarian folder?
Exactly by a Hungarian designer who works for Spyderco (I can't remember his name)
