    Thanks :)
    No, I haven't. This blade was made for a different project, But I have changed my mind in the meantime

    So what's the meaning/story behind this marking? If I may ask.

    Of course you may.
    A couple of weeks ago I have made a knife, named Navigator, which had an anchor forged into its blade and had a nice stabilized blue wood for handle.
    I decided to make another one. Rough forged the blade, hammered the anchor into it, and than started to grind away the excess material. Everything looked great, right to the point when I discovered a flaw at the tip.
    My heart stopped for a second, the fairy tale quickly gone bad and when I finally found the flaws end, I lost a good chunk of the damascus and decided to save the stabilized block of wood and gave this blade a different fate.
