DIY Easy Knife Making, learn how to etch a name or logo onto any knife blade.

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.

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.
