Yes, we can engrave swords. Most of the time we engrave on the blade. You usually find a space down from the guard that is made for engraving. U.S. Military swords have this spot. We also engrave Medieval Swords. These are usually a lower quality sword made of softer metals and we can engrave deeper. Most guards are not a good location for engraving. Remember most swords are tempered steel - this means they are a very hard metal making the engraving somewhat light. In a normal year, we engrave about 25 swords.
