    Thanks MO. Hope you get some shop time this weekend too.

    Here's the blade before the vinegar etch (just ferric/distilled). And the G10 mock that is being sent to the sheath maker in FLA.

    Jorge, thanks. I'll keep this as a WIP thread as long as no one has any objections.

    Well, this is after a little bit of shaping. Then it came time to dovetail the bolsters only to realize that I was out of 6" disc paper. Off to Ace Hardware I go...

    Time to bang them in place next. But some friends came over and it's evidently "beer:30" so maybe not much more tonight.

    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!! :mack:
