Etching/Engraving onto wooden knife handle

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Any one have any ideas on how to best etch/engrave on a wooden knife handle? I have tried the Harbor Freight Air eraser - but it didn't quite do the job I needed it to. Perhaps there is an issue with it :/ How deep should it be able to etch on glass?

An air eraser will etch - it won't really carve.   Unless you hold it on the same spot for a lengthy period of time, it's not going to cut very deep at all.   It is, after all, an air eraser - it's designed to remove paint and scale off of surfaces.

 

With a $20 sand blaster from Tractor Supply Co. or Harbor Freight, plus a bag, box or bucket of appropriate sized blasting media, you'll be able to etch much deeper into glass and carve into other materials, like wood.
