    New HHH makers mark. What do you guys think?

    First I gota say THANKS CLAY!!!! for taking this bull by the horns and running with it.

    I started on this a few months back Worked with friends, Darcy and Clint to design the logo. Then I ordered a hand stamp. Which I paid dearly for.. And when It arrived, It wouldnt make a mark. even in cherry red steel. So the stamp maker, Made another stamp for me.. redesigning it where it was gona work for sure..... Guess what.. It didnt!!lol So I ended up with 2 stamps that wont mark steel.. I was bummed but with a bad taste in my mouth from the whole thing with this vendor, I just put it on the back burner. Then my buddy Clay took my logo and contacted Ernie and had some stencils made. and hooked me up with the stuff to get r done! all within a week and for less then 1/4 of the cost of a hand stamp.. If this works as good as I hope. Ill be a happy camper!

    Then, today I get a email from him with the first marks on some scrap steel with the New HHH Logo. He had to test it out dont ya know.. lol

    What do you guys think of the new mark? Its a little mark, about 1/2 inch hig and wide.

    On a side note, I have 2 new HHH leather stamps!

    I think it looks good!
    Of course, I just hand carve my marks into the steel before HT.....

    Its Nice Randy, I would like to see the scale, some of the logos are just so huge. For me they detract from the knife and seems like the maker has a "confidence problem" hahah..

    Jim, Thanks Yep, This mark is a little under 1/2 X 1/2 or should I say aprox. 12mm X 12mm

    So its a little bigger then my current mark, But not so large it takes a 210mm bade to put it on! lol I know what ya mean about some marks. I would hate to distract alot from any aspect of the knife with a HUGE mark.
