Knappers Marks

Since the 1990's the Puget Sound Knappers have  encourgaged their members to 'register' a unique 'mark' with which they use to indentify their work.  These marks, usually made with a diamond scribe, can be the knappers initiasl, special symbol or any uniquely indentifying sign.

There are three primary purposes for signing knapped art; 1) it helps prevent the sale of replica points as artifacts, 2) it identifies the artist and helps prevent fraud through counterfeiting and 3) it provides a historical context to the knappers art

The Puget Sound Knappers will register any knappers mark.  If you want to establish a unique 'signature' for you knapped art simply email or mail your name and a photo/drawing of you mark to:
