    Hands down, the most amazing etch I've ever seen.

    Thanks guys! Im stoked about the possibility's. Next week will be Blue #2 with SS cladding. And soon to follow.. Stainless core with SS cladding.

    Also, we have been working on a new super secret, Stainless damascus "mix". (say that fast 5 times) This is also coming down the pipe for the hot side of the shop in the near future!!!

    This "mix" will allow for a few patterns that we could not offer in our current SS mix. So more patterns or at least different patterns.
    Another thing worth mentioning is.. This new blend is a fully hardenable blend. Current blend has some 304 SS in it. Which doesn't harden fully. This is not the end of the world and most of the stainless mixes with 304 With a proper heat treat and geometry make a great cutting tool. But I am excited about the new "mix"!! Ill share more info and pictures as I can.

    As always. Thanks for checking out the thread..
    Blessings
