Size:  22.8 KBgluing process. Really hope too much glue doesnt go into the saya and restrict movement of knife.

    I know its silly but im going to try and etch the kiwi. Heating up vinegar right now. I dont even know if this is how you do it...never etched anything in my life. Is this process even called etching or forcing a patina? Ive been here long enough...i really should know...did way too many drugs back in the day...

    Did you put any etchant in with the vinegar?

    The saya and handle are looking rad! Any plans for the pins?

    Should have specified sorry, mustard will probably do the same thing the vinegar did but with a slightly wilder pattern i would assume.
    etchant being the chemical added to 'etch' - remove metal, should be able to buy it over the counter at radioshack... pretty sure you can get it on ebay too. But looks like you don't need it!

    That reaction is BADASS!

    Awesome work man, you're tempted to keep it now i bet.

    Ye that thought crossed my mind but I think it would be way cooler to give it to this kid man. Hes from the hood and you only turn 18 once and I think him and his 19 year old dishwasher buddy will run a very successful restaurant someday...trying to invest in their future...
