Thank you Andy an Josh!
Good evening from Sweden.
My name is Victor and i am a 30 year old father of 2, When i am not working construction i go adventure in the woods...
I understand, That's a shame. It would be a great solution to make the blade darker again and gain some protection against rust in the process.
Had anyone tried doing a patina/etch on a 1095 blade with ferric chloride? Does it have an effect on rust prevention?
