    An absolute shameful act

    If only it were that simple, our drive to tweak things closer to perfection makes it so difficult.

    Am i representing spyderco good?

    Plenty of good info, but it seems a regurgitation of everything on spyderco's website. No opinion in it, I don't know if that's good or bad just saying. Small thing, it's the "good" instead of "well". keep at it I say!

    I have a military model, it came into my family via "uncle Frank" who was a chef in the military stationed in Germany. How many rivets does it have? 3 demarcate it as a military version.

    Ferric chloride how do I mix it

    what is it precisely you mean to do? blue a blade or expose a hamon? Personally I would just use the ferric chloride.

    Ferric chloride how do I mix it

    With certain steels you can get ebony black with vinegar/ferric chloride. I don't know how the durability stacks up to cold blue though; the oxidation from the ferric chloride is tougher than oxidation from vinegar.

    Ferric chloride how do I mix it

    I add about 35% distilled white vinegar to mine. That seems to work quite well. Both ways will work, just as quick, its preference really.
