With the small area that you need to block I would also go with clear nail polish rather than buying a can of resist from an etching supply house. However, a colored nail polish may let you see the area that you are blocking a little better. If you are able to cut your maker's mark into the nail polish you could use the nail polish as a mask for electro engraving. Maybe lay out your mask, cut your maker's mark into it, and then etch the whole blade and remove the mask afterwards.


If you're not making mistakes then you're not trying hard enough
