    Baby artichokes seem to make everything black. Including your fingers!

    Sweet potatoes, pineapple . ginger takes off my patinas pretty quickly.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Fine natural stone mud is the most effective, non scratching way to clean off patina I have found. I just use a cork to rub the mud on the blade.

    Banana.

    I just sliced one with a cck to go in my kid's porridge, left three discs on the blade for literally 15 seconds, and came back to jet black polka dots. Kinda neat.

    So strawberries and onions will turn your knife black. Will the fruit and veg turn black(ish)?
