Knights sometimes used swords to engrave people's flesh. That's not what we're talking about. In the Middle Ages, a knight's faith was in his sword. No, literally, it was "in" his sword. Knights would have blacksmiths engrave sacred words on their blades. Words from their favorite prayer, the name of a patron saint, or simply the name of Jesus Christ. What do you have faith in? What favorite words or symbols will you put on your blade? A religious quote? Your family crest? Lyrics from a Bobby McFerrin song? It doesn't matter. Strong blade's custom engraving can add just about anything you want to your blade, usually for only $15 or less!

But it's not just engraved swords. We can do helmet stands, tankards, daggers, pistol stands and knives. Here's a page with all our engravable items (and more are being added constantly.) What can you have engraved on these things? What can't you! Me, I'd like to engrave Gwyneth Paltrow's lips on the top edge of my tankard, but I'm a lonely, lonely man. Have a wedding party to buy gifts for? Want an award for your employees? Going to become a sword-wielding super hero and want your mantra on your blade? The possibilities are endless!

So, how do you show us what you want engraved on your sword? It's easy as a Kardashian! Just go to the product page of the item you want to buy, then click the "Engrave" button next to the item name. You'll be magically whisked away by the power of Internet to Strongblade's interactive engraving tool. This thing is like a video game! Seriously! I win every time! The interactive engraving utility (I like to call it the Inenguti, but that hasn't caught on) allows you to type in up to three lines of text, and position each line exactly where you want it. Here's my latest:
