    that’s funny, I vaguely remember buying, not necessarily mouldy, old knife with Res-C and I’ve never seen it...

    ...... Strange that........but if the one you bought was not mouldy I am guessing they are not one and the same..... ;)

    The only time I saw the knife was in seller’s pics, it wasn’t mouldy then... guess I should not have relied on your ‘safekeeping service’...

    It's like a bubble bath. Or rain drops on an oil slick. Somethin cool like that.

    ...... I can only think that you were duped and they shipped you this no name made in Pakistan with a truck tyre handle knife as opposed to what you actually signed up for !!!

    Really Nice!

    I hope after the contest you give us a hint how it was done. My mustard and vinegar never looked that cool.

    Some things should be kept a closely guarded family secret.

    Nothing special, but the darkened patina really looks good in person -

    This one was earned in real life! :D Helped my buddy butcher a deer just before Thanksgiving, then cleaned 10 Kokanee salmon with it last weekend.

    The patina is highly unusual, I've never seen anything quite like it, reminds me of a starscape photo of a nebula like you'd see from Hubble. :cool: It was extremely difficult to photograph, this was the best I could do, and it still doesn't do it justice. Not sure what caused it to look like this, maybe fish slime? No idea, but it's pretty awesome. :thumbsup:
