This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making a metal stamp with your initials!  Also called a "touchmark" it's how you identify your work as a blacksmith.  It can be your initials, a symbol, anything detailed enough to be original and identifiable to you.  Like a trademark...

Here is one way to do it:


Minimum requirements:
 - Hardened to handle hundreds of uses
 - Unique and detailed enough to act as your identification.  Or your initials

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished metal stamp
 - A piece of steel stamped with your mark 10 times
 
I like you because you always keep good, crunchy cereal in your pantry. This tiny ad agrees:
