    I decided to add the '2015' stamp to these last few I'm making this year. Debating on changing my maker stamp for 2016

    The stamp is cool Bud. Would the change be permanent or will you do an annual change of your stamp?

    I was thinking about doing a complete change of artwork each year. Making it easy to know what year the sheath was made. I'm surprised custom Knife Makers do not do this when marking their blades. I give Case Brothers Knives as an example. Their stamping system allows CaseXX collectors, enthusiasts, owners, etc to know what 'era' or exact year their knife was made.

    Marbles knives for a time were dated by their spacer color pattern. Each year was represented by a color pattern. All the knives had the same spacers for that year regardless of handle material.

    For example:
    B=Black
    Br=Brass
    W=White
    R=Red

    1997: B-Br-R-R-Br-B-Br (pattern reverses on pommel end of handle).
    1998: B-W-Br-R-R-Br-W-B
    1999: B-Br-W-R-R-W-Br-B
    2000: B-Br-Br-W-R-W-Br-Br-B
    2001: B-W-Br-R-Br-W-B
    2002: B-Br-R-W-R-Br-B


    Simply put ... I like the idea for an annual stamp change. Any hints what the new stamp might be?

    It's a slightly modified Fiddleback Woodsman. It was 'modified' by Andy himself.

    lol .. while I'm sure that would be cool and all, it's not really reflective of my current traits & personality. Because I'm primarily involved in K9s (training, handling, professional identifiers, etc), then it will certainly be something from that genre once again.

    Cool idea! I'd maybe toy with some type of marking maybe with Roman Numerals or something. Maybe a "golden stitch" built into one of the stitches. year one, first stitch, year two second stitch, and so forth.

    I'd recommend keeping your makers mark standard for branding and all. But what do I know...
