    Right on! Looks like the evil grinder gremlin only got ahold of one of them.

    Oops! Turned up the brightness on my screen for a better look and it appears that the grinder gremlin got ahold of three. Grrrrr!

    Battle Grade users. Still looking good. Haven't even oiled them yet and no corrosion issues so far.

    +1 for 9v etch. Takes about 10-15 mins.

    I would love a little more detail on this if you have time.
    Looking for Ash-1 Le or other Satin Ashs

    Sure thing
    The process is crazy easy. You need a 9 volt battery, alligator clips(Walmart, auto zone), salt, and q-tips.
    This video shows the process, and which terminal to connect to what.
    I didn't use vinegar,, just salt and water,,, A LOT OF SALT! Like 2 parts salt to one part water,, you can dissolve it in the microwave in a coffee mug.
    https://youtu.be/-r4Y2S7ASBE
    Attach the alligator clip so it's touching metal on your blade,, if it's coated you might want to strip a small section on the spine to expose some metal. The other end goes to the positive terminal.
    The other clip goes to the negative terminal, then get a qtip , soak one end in the salt water, and then attach the clip to the wet cotton end,leaving a little cotton exposed.
    Now start rubbing over your logo, if it's set up correctly and you have a good connection you will see it and hear it start to fizz and sizzle. I do this for about 3 to 4 seconds and then change out a new Q-tip. You should be able to physically see how deep it has etched, I would go a tiny bit more than you think you should because it seems deeper than it is with the coating on.
    Good luck!

    What he said...very easy. The above pics were my first. Watched vids on you tube and here in the etch thread, and took advice from fellow hogs here. Too dang easy man.
    I use a small toothbrush while etching to assist in carbon removal. The process is surprisingly easy. Like rcb said, Go Deep! It looks better when stripped.
