First acid etch-stone wash. I hand shook it in a coffee container with fish tank gravel. It’s kind of a weird color. It was all stainless, so it’s pretty dramatic. Next time I will soak it longer in the ferric chloride. It is fairly nasty shit. Added a faceted stone to contrast the dull blade. I was able to re-sharpen it after the stone wash, but it took awhile.
This was a try at a bushcraft, Kephart knife. It is pretty solid. Canvas micarta scales. The handle is a bit too thin. I had it sharpened by Magnus. It is useful for some food prep. I wouldn’t go camping with it, the handle is uncomfortable.
Model Number 7. Lime Patina. Some funky file work and blade mod.
Schmucktelli Co Kiko paracord bead.
Very impressed with the quality of this product for the price:
Let’s see how it holds up.
