Anybody have any good pics or tips regarding forced patina? I have a scrapyard stonewashed DB-421 that got a little patina by accident, me carelessly leaving it wet in a sheath. It’s in there pretty deep. I think I’d accidentally ruin the stonewashed finish if I sanded or hit it with the steel wool hard enough to get it off. I bought it for making sheaths and was hoping to sell it as “like new” after selling a few but that’s out the window, so I thought I’d try this. While we’re at it, anyone know a good method for removing that patina without sanding off the stone washed finish?
