    Yeah someone did that to my cast iron skillet once. "surprise we cleaned your nasty pan see it looks like new now"
    I was speechless for about 30 seconds. Then they fled the house.

    That wasn't my work (on that Hiro) but I'm glad that you were inspired to go for it on yours!

    Sorry for bumping up this thread, but I thought this will be the best place to ask.
    I want to etch some of my GF's father old stainless damascus knifes, but I cant the radio shack acid where I live.
    What I can get easily is hydrochloric acid, which I heard can be used to for etching.
    Before I do something stupid, I guessed it will be a smart move to assk you guys what do you think.
    Should the hydrochloric acid work fine? If not, do you have any other method that doesn't include Ferric Chhloride?

    Thanks in advance, Guy

    Hydrochloric should work. Ferric chloride is available on amazon from MG chemicals. I personally would use ferric over HCl (less corrosive, no fumes and less hazardous in general).

    The problem is that I don't live in the USA and I'm afraid the post office won't like me getting some acids from over sea.
    Should I use HCI just like I would with the ferric?
