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

For this BB, you will be making a touch mark.  When blacksmiths want to sign their work, they stamp it with their own mark.  First they need to make the stamp.  Let's do that!

Here is what one might look like:

(source: Amazon.com)

Minimum requirements:
 - Custom mark on the end of the stamp
 - Hardened for long term use

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 stamp with artistic touchmark
 - Proof that it's hardened (use it ten times)
 
The harder I work, the luckier I get. -Sam Goldwyn So tiny. - this ad:
