    So I decided to try my first mod. The infamous Clich.
    In honor of trying something new, I tried a new beer. I know the instructions say whiskey but I didn't have an on hand.
    Me preparing for battle.
    The strip.
    Adding gthe gun blue. Had to switch drinks, my 'ol lady wanted the 64
    Sanding the big stuff off after drying with towel.
    TECH TIP. If using a shemagh to cover your face, do not burp.
    Supervising the whole operation, Gibson
    Did not reapply the blue. Just sanded.
    Finished with micarta back on.

    Thanks clich for the lesson. Thanks C_Tanner for his mod turning out well and motivating me to get off my ass and do mine. My lovely and loving wife for taking all these photos. And all you guys for feeding my growing addiction to knives.

    Yeah...If I can do it, a retarded monkey could do it. I think after reviewing mine next to the PB that Clich did, I would stop the bleach dunk right at 45 minutes. I went 1 hour, and theres a noticable difference if you have a keen eye. Cool pattern on your 11.

    Looks really good, dude. The saber tooth bk11 seems to be right art home with a bleach etch.

    I thought the same thing!

    That's probably one of the better blue/bleach etch that I've seen! Fantastic work!

    That came out really cool looking...I might have to jump on the band wagon today.
    I am dying to see where you were working. Looks like a man cave, or a foundation with a car port attached? Whatever it is, looks like home with that Becker, Stripper and Beer.

    I have watched several shots of people doing this and I think I may finally pull the trigger and do this to my 14. Yours came out great.

    About "The Cave" I hate to destroy some of the mystery but it is a carport that is enclosed on 3 sides. The side that boarders the back yard has ivy on it and it is growing over on the inside wall. I kinda dig the way it looks so I never cut it. It is basically used for storage and my son to beat on a heavy bag. Seemed like the perfect place to work on this knife. It will from this day forward be referred to as "The Cave".

    The Cajun Candy is something that my daughter brought home from a school trip. She said she picked it up from a kiosk vendor in Shopryland ( Opry Mills Mall ) in Nashville. It is freaking delicious. I love chow chow. It is like that only sweeter but still with some heat. Totally off subject but if anyone has a good chow chow recipe I would love to have it! haha

    I cannot find anything on the internet on this but if I can find this when in Nashville this Friday and Sat I will get some for you. I will let you know if I find it and I will ship it or give it to my step brother who will be in Nashville this week for business and find a way to get it to you in Dallas.

    It is at least worth a shot to try and find. I was thinking of getting one jar for myself.
