  Painting the blade by hand  

Starting with the Master Polisher, the blade passes through six stages of polishing to obtain the final mirror finish, before being passed to the Master Etcher.

Drawing from our resource of hand etched plates of all standard designs as well as many unique vintage military, presentation patterns and regimental badges; the design is first put on to the blade by a wax transfer process and the blade then painted by hand to protect the areas not required to be attacked by the acid during the final etching process.
