    When I first started reading this forum I was in love with this thread. I have been wanting to post a pic.

    When I got this one to turn blue I wasn't even trying. I pulled a piece of chicken off the grill with the blade, and cut. I am not sure if I blued the blade itself or the patina just came out this way.

    Ahh I love people who embrace the beauty of rust, or as the Japanese called it wabi-sabi.

    Nice pics Iceman. what were you cutting? Only reason I ask is because, it looks like some bad rust on the beginning and end of the motion.

    Using Flickr: Navigate to your photo and click on the "Actions" drop down menu and choose "view all sizes". I usually pick a medium size like 500. Click your desired size, then right click in the photo and choose "copy image address". Paste this URL in the Insert Image menu on the forum and uncheck the box that reads "retrieve remote file and reference locally". Upload and you are done. Easy peasy.

    The most recent things i cut were pineapple and some pork loin. That isn't rust, but the pineapple gave it a darker and yellowish patina, which does look like rust in the pics but not in person.
