Randy I agree, I think that is perfect size my friend. It looks really good. The only thing that turns me off from these forums as too many of you guys are producing too many good looking knives .... well I guess I just have to start making more money and do more things so I can check one (or two, or three) out from every maker. So perhaps it's a good thing to add even more motivation to me!!! Keep up the good work. Impressive

Nice etch BTW. You practiced!
I like it, but how does the center knife outline come out in reality? It seems as if it might get lost in the damascus every now and then.

I really didnt want the knife to be super prominent, more a subliminal message in the image.. Where when you see the HHH with the knife behind it, your mind will be like Oh HHH Knives. Where the HHH alone you might not think the same thing.. and scratch your head going what the heck is HHH
Im not a marketing pro by any means. But see things like this all the time in logos or commercials etc. So I figured I would try it..
Cool thing is, I was looking into Tee shirts today and the logo looks CRAZY good blown up on the back of a shirt, and again small on the pocket. :) I hope when I get back in line with my cash to place a order for some shirts and hats.. ( scullys! For Mike and I. :) ) Randy Jr. wants hoodies.and the price per shirt was like really hight! So he may have to wait a year for hoodies!
Thanks for the question, and Thank you guys for the input and comments Its encouraging.

Looking forward to getting an HHH t-shirt w/ each knife order :doublethumbsup:
Looks Great Randy,I like an understated etched logo. For me a giant name with info I just don't need looks Tacky to me etched on a chefs knife.
Im blessed and thankful that Clay went out of his way to help me out on this.. And even more so, I'm pleased with the design. Its gona look AWESOME on the blades, as well as on the Tee's and hats and scull caps, etc. Here are a few variations. of the design.
I know what you all mean about some of the maker marks being used.. I wanted a mark that I can use for my hunting knives and folders as well as my kitchen cutlery. And because 85% of the knives I make are damascus, I wanted to keep it simple as to not distract and or take away from the flow of the knife..
Thanks guys for your input and comments.
