Here's a post about acid etching:
Since its already showing 3 years light use, i plan to start using my mini CQC-8 for harder stuff like wood, plastic etc....things that will inevitably scratch off the logo, year, etc. on its black painted blade.
im wondering if theres a clear-coat paint for the writing on the blade? .....maybe fingernail polish? clear tape?
I kinda wish it was laser etched...or is it?
It IS laser etched.
I wouldn't worry about laser etching wearing down. Unless you sand down the surface of the blade, there's nothing that will wear the metal to the point of removing etching.You can acid etch it to make the existing etch a bit deeper.
Link above discusses what droppoint is talking about.
Why? You are doing the Knife and its maker justice by showing off your use. A well worn blade has a history and is a part of you in brace it.
THanks for the encouragement. but at least by keeping the model, year from wearing off my offspring will be given a more detailed "history" when they inherit it.
