    i have talked to bladesmiths that use hydrocloric to eat the scale off forged blades and damascus billets. I was told that it takes about 10 minutes vs overnight soak in vinegar. However I have heard enough nasty stuff about having acids in the shop, to just stick to vinegar and ferric chloride.

    Remember to keep it in a sealed container. If it is open to the elements, when it evaporates, you will notice everything in a ten foot radius will rust within a few days... it is fairly corrosive stuff evenn when diluted
