    A bit of light raw protien scimitar patina. It runs the length of the blade but was difficult to capture.

    I love vintage Eskilstuna knives
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Salty quote,"I forced it. Litterally used a paint brush and a concoction of raw and cooked blood."

    Anything beyond that he would need to elaborate. Hope that helps.

    Got a new toy from Mario (RRLOVER) . Watanabe honesuki in blue steel. It had pretty awesome patina on it when I got it, but it needed some work on the blade road and edge so it ended up with a shiney virgin polish. Afterwards, It demolished its first of many chickens in my hands and then got a shower of hot water and vinegar.
    Here's a pic of the fresh patina and a gallery link below. I think that Mario's custom handle is even more stunning than the blade.

    Thanks Mario!

    Thanks man, that stone you sold me gave it an awesome kasumi finish and I think helped the patina set differently in the jigane and hagane.
