    Leaving it in the sink would give it a lovely orange patina? But seriously, ladies and germs.....how long do you leave mustard on a blade to get a forced patina?

    Here's Wayne Goddard's mustard patina technique. Page 60 has the what to use/how long information.

    I just did it this morning with my project cleaver, i first submerged blade in hot water, took out, wiped it a little, the blade hot is quickly drying, then I applied dijon- apple cider vinegar mixture on the blade, and wait just long enough for the mixture to dry out. Maybe 30 seconds? I repeated it 10 times. The rest comes with time.

    Thanks Lucretia, have to check this out.

    Another forced patina technique was shared by Øivind's friend Harald (Darkhoek) in his blog:
