Sergey Sakirkin Artist-blacksmith
artist-blacksmith touch mark
Every one of Sergey's artist-blacksmith creations carries his registered touch mark. Just as most great painters have included their signature on their work, artist blacksmiths use a personal touch mark to "sign" their artwork. (Since the 13th Century, articles created by goldsmiths and silversmiths who were members of a guild have been marked with some form of "guild mark" or "hallmark" to certify authenticity.)
