Default Re: Help!!!

Sounds like stainless of some type. If you are using HSS it may not work easily or at all. Try Carbide or another type of harder graver. The advice given is good to heed Sam knows many tricks, but with a standard graver it may not be enough.
Some Stainless is near impossible to cut but a fair amount used in knives will. Check the stainless with a magnet, if it is magnetic the chance of it being engravable are pretty good. If not you have a big job ahead.
Use the same process as Sam outlined as stated try a greater attack angle.
Remember the brand of knife it could save grief later.
