    Very nice! Next time you cut up limes you should have some good tequila to go with it! LOL

    I love it! I've done a couple with mustard, but never thought of lime and wasabi. That patina is HOT! [dancindevil]

    Cool look , going to have to give that a try , thanks for sharing the pictures and tip.

    To give a old , battered and lightly pitted appearance , Lightly and briefly rub the blade with bleach...but be careful as a little goes a looooooong way.

    Only put the patina on my knives. It’s a lot of work keeping wifee’s clean and shiny. So I told her the patina can help protect her blade, so she said to do it. Monkey though it looked cool, so wanted a patina too. Both good reasons. Not sure where the other monkey will stand.

    But here are the other two next to mine. Getting lime and wasabi treatment.

    Nice work, Hanzo!

    I used vinegar, as I recall. Perhaps some potato, too. Cold Steel Trail Boss:

    I have a very similar tigerstripe-type appearance using lime and Tapatio hot sauce on mine. I'll add a pic tomorrow, if you don't mind.

    Edit: maybe tigerstripe is not so accurate, but that's what it reminds me of.

    Some patina from use...these knives are all from the 1890's - early 1900's and still used by me today.
    Please note that I am not knocking anyone in this thread for aging or "making" patina on a blade...its a fun addition to do...just showing some natural patina for some ideas....

    Natural patina is also good. Most of mine are that way. The Mora's were new and shiny... And my wife started to get rust spots on hers.

    Sorry I took so long, @Hanzo, life got stupid. Anyway...

    Here she is. I need to thank you as well for this thread. I haven't went through my GHB in 2-3 months, and found some things amiss, like this: time for another coat of oil.

    Also, two other problems were corrected: found that my fuel tab packaging was compromised, and that Calico brand lighters leak. Checked the wife and kids' bags...all lighters were empty. They were enclosed in a tin inside each pack, with no chance of button being depressed accidentally.
    Check your gear, folks.

    Sorry to derail...back to the knife pr0n.

    No sorries. All is good. Good point to always check gear. That’s how this thread got started. Checked wifee’s knife and found some spotting after she got it wet in the sheath.

    Advantages of the old school wooden sheaths like the ones holding the Filipino bolos are that they are fairly lightweight, drain moisture well and I can use the sheath to not only strop the blade, but also to take off a wire edge. And in dire emergencies, tinder and cordage.
