Runes and inscriptions


Any of the swords made in my workshop can be decorated by an inscription. I’m using the aquaforte or acidcut method. I conver the blade in varnish, insoluble in acid, scrape off the design of my choice and dip the sword into a tank of acid, which etches the design onto the blade. The etching is about 0,5 mm deep, which makes the inscription durable and aesthetic. The design is then oxidised or platered with gold.

The symbols and the font (glagolica) are from the game Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
