Quality of our Special Hand Stamp "APIQ"

We at Pickardt Marking Tools pride ourselves on the quality of our marking tools. Made with carbon steel and hardened by hand, our steel stamps are chemically nickel-plated to provide an extra layer of user safety and protect from rust. These symbol stamps can be used in the most demanding areas such as steel construction, die construction, forging and blacksmithing. They are equally at home in the DIY and hobby sector.

Why quality is important:

Pickardt is all about offering Safety, Reliability and Value.

The number of injuries related to Striking Tools is at a higher percentage than any other tool category without the tool itself adding to the danger.

Pickardt prides itself on offering Tools that are heat treated and so are more durable and long-lasting, and not brittle where shrapnel could cause various injuries with the most severe usually involving the eyes.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to keep people from hitting the tool in the wrong place or missing completely sometimes. To try and safeguard the users hand and fingers from being hit, Pickardt steel stamps are often longer for improved grip or offered with indestructible hand grips on the shank of the tool or even supplied with a separate safety grip.



Steel Stamps are used to mark anything from Aluminum to Stainless Steel, certain leathers, plastics and sometimes wood, with numbers, letters or symbols.
