( With the patina that is; not the rust.)



Inspecting a Spyderco blade seems to dangerous work; I’m sure I saw one of those ants limping, when they moved away.
How did you get ZDP to patina like that? I know it's "stain resistant" and not totally stainless, but I've never heard of much more than slight discoloring and/or rust.
