Please, tell us how you mod the blade ? What chloride used and technics to get that even stonewashed scratching on it.
How was the loctite on the screws ?...
We need to know more !! :-)
I used ferric chloride. Cleaned the blade with acetone and then protected the pivot etc with some nail polish. Then I dipped it in the acid multiple times until I was satisfied with the level of darkness I had achieved. Once that was done I threw it in a container full of rocks with some olive oil and then shoot it like crazy. I also gave the liners, screws (tops only) and clip the same bath in acid. Then reassembled and sharpened.
I’m getting faster at this every time I try it. This is my fourth knife. I knew before I bought this knife that I was planning on missing it. I like the contrast of the nice clean handle scales versus the finish on the blade.
Glad you like it!
