    It's PCB etchant solution you can get at Radio Shack. It's used to etch logos into coated blades, acid washes, etc...

    She may not like it. It may burn. I would recommend using it on the 'clip' instead. ;)

    Yeah, you might get some slight color discoloration, and your wife will be mad at you! :D

    Nah really, it's about $7-8 a bottle at Radio Shack. Better hurry, I hear a lot of them are going out of business and I don't know where else to get it!

    Don't forget, most of the time, it is used diluted.

    It will chew up your edge, so you will need to sharpen the knife. Plus, I would try to keep it out of the pivot area. It will beat up the pivot, washers, and anything else in the way that is made from a metal.

    Baking soda neutralizes it, but it foams up crazy, like gains 3x+ in size and will need a few applications to.make sure it is all cleaned up.

    Use a glass/pyrex/HDPE container.

    Really enjoying Maxamet since my wife bought this one for me for Christmas! I honestly feel like Maxamet shines when it is fully polished and it polishes up quite easily!

    Cutting through some black walnut...

    It's not invincible, you can see the damage better in the second picture. But its not brittle. Performance is better then anything I've used so far

    Wow, I like the G10 conversion. I have the BladeHQ Sprint Run in CPM-M4 and now the lightweight. As you can see I have a thing for these leaf shaped, flat ground, distally tapered blades.
