    I Cliched a knife and I liked it


    ADVERTISEMENT
    (Yes, another "Cliching" thread)

    Hello all. Just wanted to show off my attempt at Cliching my BK2. I followed the instructions and the thing turned out pretty darn well, if I do say so myself. Very well documented, Clich. Thanks for the instruction! I highly encourage trying this at least once with one of your Beckers. It not only looks sweet but it's also one of those "feel good" kinda things when you are done. Gettin' your hands dirty and mod'ing a knife never felt so good. I did not have enough bleach so I watered it down a little and it still worked out well. Sadly, there was no whisky to accompany it. Maybe next time







    Enjoy!

    Looks good man. I just got my 2 today and plan on doing mine as soon as I get my vinyl masking from mrn8. I can't wait

    The pattern I got here reminds me of the one that Clich got with his Izula. I just used cotton swabs and swabbed it around all over. Axis, good call on using the Vinyl from mrn8. I just got some from him too and am looking forward to trying it out. He's a good kid

    I went to the dollar store and got:

    Oil Based lip balm (2 Pack) $1
    Steel wool (12 pack) $1
    Masking tape $1
    Bleach $1

    Wal mart:
    Perma blue $5
    Variety of sandpaper ~$6

    So we are looking at around $15. The nice thing is that most of the stuff you can use for other knife mod'ing projects as well.

    Oil based gel. Vaseline, lip balm, whatever. Just coat the areas you do not want etched with it and you will be fine. Check the link in mt signature and check out post #25.

    I love love love the way the etching looks! Just cant wait to get my 2 in. But i also have a question about this process. From everything i have read and seen, you have to strip the black coating off first, correct? Will the bleach do this without haveing to strip the coating?

    Yes, it must be stripped first. You can use Citri Strip or Kwik Strip spray to get the job done. It's not too hard. You may want to have some 100, 200 & 400 grit sandpaper handy for imperfections on blade and grind marks.
