The tombstone with a Sitting Fox over E.B. was used by Edward Bond to mark Hudson's Bay Company Trade Guns on both the locks and barrel. The top flat of the barrel was marked approximately 1" from the breech. The lock was marked on the plate ahead of the cock.

This "Sitting Fox" logo was derived from the top of the HB Co. logo.

The inspector's mark is about .275" wide, about .400" tall, and the tool body is 2-1/2" length, 1/2" diameter, brightly polished steel, hardened to Rc 62 to 65 (as hard as a file). Wrap the body with masking tape to provide a better grip.

Made in the USA, of very hard steel, this tool will give a long life, if used correctly.

Be careful, be safe. If mis-struck, this steel marking punch can become a projectile. Wear safety glasses. Protect your fingers.

Our instructions are included with each tool. Or click the download tab to view, and print these step-by-step instructions as a .pdf file.

Marks on rounded or flat steel surfaces require multiple strikes, in sequence. Marks in wood require only one controlled strike.

No Return, No Refund, No Exchange. Steel marking punches are expendable hardened steel tool bits, with a service life similar to drill bits or hand taps. The value is in the first use. Longevity is under the control of the user. We do not offer a warranty nor a refund for these tools. They are an investment for future use.

Never attempt to mark tempered steel, plated steel, or case-hardened steel with these hand stamps.
