    Johnny, what are you cutting that is cleaning the patina off? Brie and Avocados are the ones that do it for me.

    On my whites, I find that raw salmon and raw turnips clean off the blue patina. It's like a ever changing skyscape, changes daily. I love it

    The patina is there, it just isn't that colorful. Probably because I cut the majority of my items in that area.

    BTW - I am now totally overboard. Just realized I am recognizing knives by their kanji. And at three sheets! Nice Shig Johnny.

    Wow! Just viewed all 30 screen pages of this thread in one go. Man, now I "got joo-joo eyeballs!" I wondered if heat can be a factor in creating a patina. Say wrapping the blade in a piece of cloth with whatever substance that are being used, mustard, vinegar, meat, blood, tomatoes, etc, and then holding a hairdryer to the wrapped up blade. Or something like that. Would there be X-treme Patina then? Is there a danger that the heat might affect the steel adversely? If so at what temperatures?
