at least this time it wasn't on accident. some of you guys might remember this thread http://www.spyderco.com/forums/showt...ght=experiment
cliffnotes, i put a wet salt into a chlorine bucket and it created hydrochloric acid (sp?) well the after effects when i washed the black crud off looked pretty cool. So i tried it with a byrd while protecting the grind of the knife. here are the results.
WARNING: this produces really nasty fumes and could very well be highly dangerous. Don't do it!
ok, now that the disclaimer is out, here are the results:
here is a pic of the blade in some water. i found that wetting the blade and putting it on top of the tablet out of the water was the best way to go. In the water all it did was rust.
i didn't get to take any pics of the blade b4 i washed it. the stuff was nasty and i rinsed it right away...again the fumes are bad.
here it is all cleaned up and the tape removed. i think next time i am going to try it on a serrated knife and dip the scallops in some wax.
i dont have any loctite at work so i will post some pics of it all back together tomorrow. one more disclaimer, this is considered abuse and will void your warranty.
