Stainless Steel Bare Metal
Laser engraving on bare stainless steel changes the molecular carbon
composition of the engraved surface resulting in a BLACK LASER MARK. The laser mark is
permanent and resistant to wear or fade.
Coated Stainless Steel
Knife blades are often coated with a black or grey coating. Knives and tools with this type of coating can be laser engraved. Laser engraving on these surfaces will remove the coating resulting in the base metal showing after engraving. Engraving will show as silver or the color of the base metal.
Engraving Anodized Aluminum
Anodized aluminum handles on multi-tools and knives can be laser engraved. Laser engraving on anodized aluminum will result in a white mark. This laser mark is permanent and resistant to wear or fade.
