    Ok, can we discuss this patina here? It looks a lot like one I've done before on a zKrameer by doing patterns with mustard, doing each pattern (or layer) one at a time, allowing each time to set for 2hrs.

    yes, you're correct! this is forced patina done by Micheal Rader. you have option to choose either "satin finish" or "mustard finish" on Rader's knife.

    How did the mustard patina smell when it arrived?

    Yes I made that handle the other day - that was a fun one. I've been making my own mosaic pins too, but am design limited to what I have on hand. I can knock one out in @ five minutes now.

    I use this exact same combo. No matter what else i get, these two remain my go-to kit.

    Nice grabs!

    If you are forcing a patina like that, polish the blade with 0000 steel wool and camellia oil to get that smooth finish.

    that I did not know, which might explain why my forced patina did not stay so "beautiful" for too long. I took pics, but still trying to find them...
