    Safely Marking Cutlasses/Swords for Inventory Control?

    Morning Gentlemen,
    I have a question. I am currently needing to categorize and identify the cutlasses, axes, boarding pikes and other items in my collection for insurance and other purposes. I'm looking to number and mark each item and then have an inventory control sheet to provide the detailed description, price, etc etc. I was thinking of using a small dab of "white out" on each piece and then writing the inventory number on it once it dries.

    Whiteout is non-volatile since it is to be used on paper and as such it doesn't have acids (like glue or adhesive) or salts that would harm the metal.

    Yes I know, where the whiteout is the metal wont age like the rest of the metal. But it can be very easily removed with just a damp cloth and it wont penetrate the metal.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Mike
