During the NRA Annual Meetings this weekend Benchmade is offering free laser engraving on any Benchmade knife. While I was there yesterday a guy was having his family name engraved on a knife he brought. They misspelled it. :) They gave him a free replacement on the spot, new and properly engraved.
Do you guys have any engraved knives? If so, what did you put on them. I was thinking my initials or something like Molon Labe or Don't tread on me.

I wish all companies would offer this. It really personalizes the blade. I had one given to me during the holidays from my Mother. I wanted to remember it always.
The neat thing about this sort of etching is it has some depth to it so it can show up under a finish like Gun Kote:
And with a little tape and some creativity you can make a single use stencil for a custom job like putting my daughter's initial on the knife I made for her:
Unfortunately I've never gotten around to having my original stencil idea made up...sort of a universal warning pictogram:
