I remember reading something about you reshaping a handle sometime back. It may take a while before I get my nerve and skill up to take on the task. I know it would bump it up a notch or two on my favorites list.
Smithcrafter, you should be able to click on my username for contact options. You may need to be in web view if your using an app. I don't like posting my email on these forums.
I fixed the hyperlink problem in my "Index of Fiddleback Reviews" post on Page 1. They are functional now and you are cleared for take-off. Have fun on the journey.
Thanks for the kind words. You did great on your first review. You will get better each time you do one. My advice is to take lots of outdoor photos for the best natural lighting and pick the best ones to use in your review. I discard way more than I keep because my photography skills have a long way to go to match the likes of mistwalker and thurin among others around here. We are all a work in progress.

Not finding your email to connect. Let me know. Thanks again!
My KE bushie rocks this patina. It took me two 20 mins sessions of covering the blade with the onion, garlic, mustard trifecta to achieve the below results. I like it.
Not all 01 is created equally. I've owned some 01 that I swore was stainless. Some 01 takes some effort to patina naturally. So keep that in mind if you don't plan on forcing a patina. If you do choose to force one, just have fun with it and find what works for you.
That's slick Josiah
Josiah, that is an amazing patina. I have never done that to one of my blades, but after seeing yours I think I am going to have to give it a try!
My full review and test is on the Mid tech Kephart.
