Tip: Marking steel with a brass stylus.

This works well on steel with hard fire scale covering the surface, the same way that a pencil point abrades onto a piece of paper. It makes a nice clean durable line.

  1. T, tried this with a piece of bronze welding rod and it worked great.

    1. Good point R! It works with a variety of non ferrous metals. I only use gold on "special stuff". LOL

      (As a side note: You can draw on paper with silver. I think I might start sketching my knives like that.)
