Posted on Think I want a branding iron. Is "HAND CRAFTED" considered 100% hand tools?

Probably.

But I must admit, my branding iron says:
“Handcrafted” by Tsunami Guitars, NOT “Handmade”. Most of us are not violin makers hand sanding a bow into the face of a violin, tapping it often to see if it meets the tonal needs.

Most of us are talking about table saws, routers, etc. and if by hand, pushing high end hand planes with electric sharpening systems behind them.

The thing about irons, you have to convey a way for people to recognize your name, and be able to contact you if they want something. All in two or three words. I have a fair amount of people who see my branded items, and just google Tsunami Guitars and they can get a phone number, my website, and a gmail address.

Just sold five items in the last week that way.
