Very cool. Did you document the process? I'd love to see that. Never made a knife before.

I finished the blade and polished up the handle. I didn't get a pic of it before I gave it to my Father in law though.

Seems like a fun project. How many hours did you put into it and how much did it cost you?

Just did a forced patina on the blade by submerging it in Apple Cider Vinegar for a half hour. I like the way it came out. It faded the handle a little bit, so I polished it up with Johnson's Paste Wax

Thanks for the compliment!
ps; You know you can delete your double posts just as easy as editing them. Seems like a lot of people dont know that.

Thanks! I learned something new today... :)
