What is the safest maximum depth for an engraving on the USGI op rod?

the phrase that i am going to get engraved is a secret until it is finished...at which point ill post up pics. DI2DI2DI2

I don't know a safe depth but I don't think you should be concerned if you are not gong to place the engraving on an area that contacts another metal area. I doubt at the depth you need you would not need to be concerned with it bending in the area of the engraving. As you can see it is stamped pretty deep where the original markings are. Anyone else have any thought agree disagree????
