"This was a quick trial I did just to see....No real programming was done with this.  Just a quick photo from my phone onto the app for the laser and then burned away.  "

"I recently purchased a dual diode laser, the Atomstak Pro10  (10W output power).  I'm hoping to transition to engraving on knife handles and even on a blade if I can get the settings dialed in."

"Heh! Who doesn't like a good ole' Mythosaur skull? What file format do you use for your laser marker?  For that matter, what laser marker do you like to use?  Fiber, or CO2 ?   "

Hi Derek - welcome to iKC! Good looking engraving work. I just might have to send you some pieces. 

So spill the beans...how did you come to have three Ames M1860 USN Cutlasses? With scabbards no less? Awesome!!! I have one dated 1862, but without its scabbard, unfortunately. I obtained mine back in 1978 before collecting such items became all rage. 

Anyway - I've enjoyed your photos - thanks for sharing them!
