At Bodkin, our vision is to help you create stronger IP.  The name Bodkin comes from Old English and represents a type of sharp, pointed dagger.  Arrows of the long bodkin type were used by the Vikings and throughout the Middle Ages for their ability to pierce through mail armor.*

As a company name, Bodkin suits us particularly well.  Our patent search strategies are sharp and successful.  We take pride in piercing the competition's IP “chainmail”, help strengthen your patents and support the evolution of product design for medical and mechanical projects.
