I am not a pro knifemaker, just a hobbiest. This is how I do it.
This photo is some nail marks cut with various dremel type wheels. The one on the completed knife is good. The other four are failures and the blades were scrapped.
This photo shows stamped marks. The blank blade is soft steel and shows how the stamp looks before clean up straight from the arbor press. the finished knife has had the mark deepened by hand and is ground, hardened and tempered (of course).
