20+ years of knifemaking has shown an evolution not only in the design of the knives and the techniques used to make them, but also in the maker that marks them.
Below are some examples of the different marks used through the years, as well as some knowledge behind the marks we're currently using.
With the transition from Munroe Knives to Munroe Metwalworks there also came a transition from the old Triskel logo to a new one, as well as two other maker's marks that represent different methods/techniques involved in the creation of our work.
Our 20th anniversary triskel logo, the next evolution of the classic logo design. If you see this logo on a blade or product it signifies that the model was designed on a computer and/or manufactured/machined using modern stock-removal techniques.
The Munroe Metalworks Bindrune. This bindrune was made using a combination of the futhark runes Ehwaz, Dagaz, Teiwaz, and Algiz.
The MM bindrune touch mark signifies a piece was hand forged by DC Munroe, and is hot stamped on pieces during the forging process.
The vertical MM mark is a dual bindrune, representing collective potential, and the divine structure of intelligence in the human soul and psyche. This mark is mainly used to signify hand work, and when stamped into a blade it signifies that the blade was ground by hand. This mark is also used on smaller pieces as a touch mark implying the hand made nature of the item.
Legacy Models (2017 and older) will continue to be marked with our classic Triskel logo
