Stone-Wash Opinel-Mod

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.
