IT seems that in Japan, it is regularly cleaned off after the days use.
Natural stone mud of 10k?
I thought patina was a good thing for the blade. Stops the metal taste and protection.
Read post by TheDispossessed. Ha ha!
zitangy. We meet again. Thanks for your help. My brain will soon explode. :)
Dooood chiillllllll.... You're overthinking things lol. Some people like the aesthetics of a mirror polish and prefer to keep the blade patina free. In Japan it is considered "dirty" so blades are scrubbed religiously at the end of a shift as part of the closing responsibilities.
as for the steel color, it depends on the reaction between the two, blue, and white both take different colors with the same reactions.
No you will not get any reaction from stainless steel.
When you have patina on a blade it will slowly rub off, but also creating new as the slice goes through. This will leave different colors as to the time of when it was created.
Hope this helps.
a workman's patina that is
too funny. I know about this movie but I've never seen it.
