    Because I need the tip sharp so I just sharpen over it Usually little bit breaks off after every sharpening

    wow, so many cool looking patinas. I am REALLY tempted to do it to my freshly arrived carbonext. The knive is a great cutter but visually its pretty drab and that mustard walkthrough looks like a great thing for me to do today while im cleaning up the rest of the house....someone, push me over the edge and tell me to


    EDIT: Due to the carbonext having some rust resistance, will that change how this works/result? Or will it just take a bit longer per application?

    damn, was too late to add another edit, but would the blood method work better than mustard? sorry I looked around the web for answers but couldnt find anything that was more specific to my knife. Thanks

    I have found that blood gives a much deeper blue, while the mustard I used gave more of a greyish color.

    well the blood does seem quite appealing too, my main concern is the fact that my knife is semi-stainless, will it look at crappy lol
