    Rustic Reactivity

    I just bumped into these Cut Brooklyn knives. I kind of like how the maker (Joel Bukiewicz) forces a rustic patina.

    An interesting way of dealing with reactive steel, just force your own patina on new knives and sell them that way.

    Maybe other knifemakers do that too, but this is the first time I've seen it.

    Ditto the above posts,

    I saw his knives three or four years ago and have always thought they were awesome. Now that I have a better understanding of knives I really appreciate the profile design he has chosen. Other than that I don't know much about how they perform.

    i've met joel and he seems like a fairly nice guy.....his knives were nicer in person than i thought they were.....the handles were nciely finished but some were a little different to hold....i've never used one so i can't speak about performance but it looked like a pretty nice knife.....a little expensive from what i remember about prices but.....ryan

    Hi Mr.Drinky. I've been doing that for a couple years now with my 52100 blades and the "mustard finish."



    Works great and seems to be quite a popular look.

    That mustard patina is awesome. How do you get the pattern so consistent? Do you apply it with a brush?

    Ok, this is getting weirder. He said, "If you run across Dave Martell, tell him to give me a call. I haven't spoken to him in ages"!
    So, I guess give him a call. Haha

    It seems like Joe's profiles have gotten a lot better. I'm not sold on the handle but I've never held one so I will withhold judgement. He obviously has a following.

    That is a very cool blade look. I can see why it's popular.
