    ( 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.

    Unfortunately no Spyderco but at least a nice patina. I didn't do anything with it except cutting apples. By the way the steel is 1095. One of my favorites

    Not a Spyderco, yet still one of my favorites. Northwoods Norfolk with Light Ebony and 1095. It didn't look like this before I cut up an apple!

    Agreed, the steel is very organic (as I have said in the past) and does seem different every time I examine it.

    Thanks. The 3.5 has been my almost daily carry for the last 2.5 years. There really is a lot to like about that knife.

    So after 6 days I have only cut 2 apples and a small piece of lemon, it'll be interesting to see how the patina will develop over time.

    Thanks! No, it's a 100% natural patina. I had my fill forcing patinas on my Caly 3 and Gayle Bradley. This patina was achieved so far from cutting apples, peaches and plums. I quite like it.
