    on a side note, what's the deal with the double etch? That's a new one on me.

    Are you doing ferric, then a vinegar etch? Why for?

    Yeah, ferric then the vinegar. I like the rate that the FC eats away for a deep etch, but I'm not much for the black so I handrub the blade again after the FC etch. The vinegar acts slower and gives me the color I like. That's all, nothing too scientific from me, but I'm sure you already knew that!!
