homebrew acid-etched/stonewashed blade

I read on another forum a cheap/easy way of modifying the finish on blade steel.

The knife I used was a Benchamde 950-1 Rift. I don't have any personal before pics, but here's someone else's pic of how the blade looks from the factory (matte satin finish):



That's probably my least favorite finish on a blade. Looks plasticky.

Here is my picture after it's been acid-etched and then stone-washed.



I really like the weathered/antiquey look, particularly for this knife since the scales are so organic-looking.

I lay my shanks in the rain and let em rust a little.


Thats cool you have an interest in it though. Just curious, why would you feel the need to change the look of a knife blade? HObby? You keep them on display? Make em?

It's kind of a hobby, yeah. I don't make any or keep them on display. I just carry one every day. There's a whole community of knife knuts who love knives like other folks love cars.
