I have put on my 2nd set of brass bolsters and the problem of weight is turning people off. The main thing is the
dull look after a week, is there a sealer you can put on brass to to keep tarnish away?
I use both brass and 416 stainless. I have found that there is nothing you can do to keep the brass bright on a user knife. I still like it. It looks more correct on some knives dull or not. A quick rub with car wax will bring dull brass back to the light in a hurry.
