Frequently asked engraving questions


1. How do I add an engraving to my knife?

Each qualified knife displays "Engraving from $6" underneath the add to cart button. Click on it to add engraving to your knife!

All knife handles are laser engraved, meaning your text or artwork will be burned into the wood. Artwork and logos uploaded to the blade location will also be laser engraved.

Text on the blade will be diamond engraved using a diamond tipped tool that etches the engraving into the metal. This is the more subtle, classic look.


2. Can I engrave my Opinel with an artwork or logo?

Yes, you can. Simply select the logo / artwork option from the blackboard after clicking the "Engraving from $6" button as explained above. Upload your artwork from your machine to our system. Please note that only one file can be uploaded to each knife.
