Stamping Knife Blades the Right Way

Posted by Matt Martin

stamping knife bladesRustick Knives, in Fayettesville, NC, is run by Jack Stottlemire, a disabled veteran and small business owner.  He is committed to creating the absolute best combat knives for our brave servicemen and women.  He is a retired Army Special Operations Sergeant Major who spent many years serving his country in special operations so he knows what make a knife unique and effective.

One requirement he needed to fill was to permanently identify each hand crafted knife with the Rustick logo and 'Made in the USA'.  So when he needed to find a steel hand stamp supplier he reached out to a few friends and asked their opinion.  They recommended a company but when he went to the Internet to find them he first found Durable Technologies.
