    Free hand acid etched blades. None out there like em.. i can say that with confidence. I have yet to see anyone acid etch intricate patterns this way. They have to be done centimeter by centimeter because nail polish blobs forms a congealed string like substance which is very hard to work with. Each knife took anywhere from 30-40hrs to fully design and complete. I work on them a few hours a day... not physically or mentally possible to all do in one sitting. It is well worth it when you hold and look at the final product.
    I've been accused of using stencils, cnc, glow forge, laser engraving and all other kinds of shenanigans... which is both a complement and an insult ahah. Ive attached some pictures of the knives in progress to prove that it really all is done free hand with nail polish and ferric chloride. I finished them all except the last picture which is in progress at the moment. Enjoy! :)
