Thanks again.

the etch does kinda add a little something doesn't it. It was just a quick dip about 30 seconds in some 4:1 water/ferric

Awesome etch. The 2ndary shadows you get above the cladding line on your knives are more dramatic than any others Ive seen.
Can you explain what causes this without giving away too many secrets? Is it just the thinness of the cladding?

Hi Justin, I am not positive but I think it is in the initial forging.
