Put branding iron/branding/branding wood in the Search box and see what comes up. Think this was quite a big topic in this forum's heyday :)

If you are in the UK you could try Shaw Engraving in Sheffield (search google for M Shaw Engraving). They made mine - a tad expensive but a nice piece of kit. You just have to decide whether the upfront cost is worth it and whether your design actually requires a branding iron or is it something you can put on without (e.g. Initials).

Hope that helps.
