Is it possible to 'carve' into the flat of the blade with anything to allow a pattern to appear which coould then have epoxy inserted so a design would then appear on the spine and the flat?

Thinking something tribal or runic which could then have expoxy or glow powder inserted .
Obvious , thickness of blade material would be a limiter,

??

Yes i think you could either do a deep and wide laser etch and fill it, or use a water jet cutter, but youd need to write the program of the pattern, put it to disk, and give the disk to the cutting company, i might be wrong, but most things are possible

I have attempted this on 3 occasions so far. I seem to be sanding away part of the filework on the spine. Any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong?

Sorry dt, ive only just spotted your question, you need to keep the rubbing block on the flat of the handle at all times, the other thing that could be causing you to rub to much epoxy away is if the paper is loose on the block, cut the rubbing paper so it goes up the sides of the block, and keep it gripped tight, any problems get in touch
