    Because I have the hemp and plasti dipped handle, I'm not going to mess with trying to strip that finish, but if anyone else gives it a shot, I would love to see if it just removes that top grey/silver/bronze or if it also removes the black coating underneath as well.

    52100 patinas like a boss with heavy use. If it strips off the top and bottom coating, I could definitely go for a fully stripped dagger.

    I would think the blade could look good stripped and polished. It would rust pretty easy, but heck I remember when stainless steel was just a dream and you had to actually take care of the knife(got some nice patina's too) just like my guns at the time. Just picked up a Forged Bowie for $19.99, might think about trying to strip and polish the blade.....
