Engravint an Exacto Knife Set

So I got an Exacto knife set for Christmas, which I liked. I thought it needed some personalisation to make it look awesome, so here's what I came up with:

Basically I just drew what I wanted on Draftsight and generated gcode with CamBam. Cuts were made to .020" (if I zeroed correctly) at .010" per pass. Oh and there was some spray paint too.

So apparently it's "X-acto Knife." Maybe I'll fix it if I feel up to it.
