I recently had a customer come in wanting an epoxy powder coated knife blade engraved. I have both co2 and diamond drag capabilities, I was wondering if someone has had any experience with engraving through the epoxy powder coating

The laser will do a very nice job. I take two passes.

Haven't tried diamond drag or rotary but my guess is that diamond drag would not work.

I have lasered powder coating as well, it turns out really nice. As Mike said, take two passes, the first to get 99% of the coating and the second to clean it up. I don't have drag capabilities but my guess is that it would have a tendency to chip the edges.
