Then transfer the film onto the knife in desired position.
Use a razor knife to cut out the stencil. Everything removed is the area which will be etched.
These photos depict the neg wire from the car charger being connected to the knife and the positive being clipped to the wet end of a Q-tip. Do not let the metal on the charger wire touch the knife blade or it will spark and leave a mark. Leave the Q-Tip on each part of the stencil for at least a minute.
Once the stencil is cut out its time to mix up a small container of vinegar and salt and get out the car charger.
Another method uses a piece of metal to replace the Q-Tip. The metal is held close enough to touch a drop of the vinegar but not close enough to touch the knife blade. This method achieved much faster results. Please check out the short youtube video posted on the top of this page.
Any name or logo can be etched into the blade or handle of a knife but keep in mind the simpler the design the easier it is to cut out.
