Black oxide coated knife

Ive seen nice engravings done but i just can’t figure out the right settings. Has anyone tried this? If so could you please share your settings, I’m on a GF pro btw

There’s probably a lot of variation here. I think you’re just going to have to test on a spare blade.

The thickness of the oxide is unknown. No harm in asking the question, but no one can give you a definitive answer for the particular material you have in your hands. Test all the things.

You can immobilize the object in a jig, and starting with low power, sneak up on the desired result by running the file again.

If you want to contribute to the collective, you could share pics and settings, so others can use them as starting points for their own testing.
