Laser engraving

What can be engraved?

The answer is simple: almost all of our metal parts can be laser engraved. Although we got a few restrictions that must be followed.

Restrictions

  • The target material has to be metal
  • The design must fit into a 10 cm x 10 cm square
  • The target surface has to be flat or very close to it

required formats

The best possible format you can send us your design, is in a vector-based format: DXF; DWG; SVG; EPS; AI; PDF

On the other hand, we can use large-size images too, but these will require some preparatory work. The most common formats: JPG; PNG; BMP; TIF

Engraving on the schilt

Engraving on the feder schilts is one of the most popular choice when it comes to our feders customization. Be it a family coat of arms or your custom design, we will surely make it happen. For help you can find some templates and guides below.

Engraving on the blade

Engraving blades is a popular choice and easily done, however, we do not recommend it for any sword or trainer that might be used for heavy training or tournament purposes. There is great potential to weaken the mechanical structure of the sword or feder which could lead to possible fractures with vigorous use. Engraving the blade can be a fantastic choice for presentation or display swords but is not recommended for everyday training and competition swords and would void the warranty in such cases.

Engraving on guards & Pommels

It is possible to engrave on our pommels and crossguards, although the target area has to be flat. Also, we do not recommend the engraving on any kind of part which will be used for heavy training or tournament purposes, because it weakens the mechanical structure of the steel and leads to possible fractures.

guides & Templates

We use the “quick guide” to determine the orientation, type and placement of your design. There is also an “engraving template”, which can be used to help you with your ideas, sizing and the positioning.

Pricing

To give you an accurate price estimation, we first need to see your idea. The price of the engraving depends on three factors: the complexity of the design, the graphic preparation if needed, and the amount of time the engraving process takes. Below you can see some price estimations:
