    Back at it again! As promised I have finally finished the Cold Steel Finn Wolf. I etched the blade lock-bar and pocket clip. The whole project took me anywhere from 35-40 hours in total. Pictures and videos really cant capture the work in its fullness because unlike engraved surfaces this method produces mirror like patterns... which can only truly be appreciated when viewed in your hand in person. I plan to put it up for sale once I get the maker/service provider membership.

    Beautiful work!

    Is this acid etched or hand engraved?

    Amazing. Without doubt the nicest Finn Wolf on planet Earth.

    It is acid etched but done by hand to such detail it appears engraved. I like the fact that unlike engraved surfaces the way I etch produces mirror like patterns. These mirror like patterns give off the illusion of movement as different colors and angles of light hit it. Its a lot of work but the final product is definitely worth it.
