Ok, I know a knife's patina evens out and 'matures' over time, but when do you reset a patina? Or force one? Just wondering.
I've reset a patina a few times just because I wanted to learn to polish a blade, but today because of a finger injury I wasn't wiping my blades as well as I usually do, and my new Ealy got some unsightly (high-up) garlic chunk patina on one side.
I'm not going to reset it, but now I might force a patina to even things out.
What sort of funky patina fetishes do you freaks have?? I know you are out there. Just step out of the dark.
