Tumbled Blade Finish Question

Oct 20, 2005
I have had several requests for a blade finish which has been placed into a vibratory tumbler to give the blade a unique finish. I have a five pound vibratory tumbler for ammo brass and deburing parts & pieces. I am looking for any info on details to finish ATS-34 blades. Such as any companies who put out detailed product info, type of media needed to process the surface of stainless, how long should the process continue and should the vibratory action be wet or dry.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Be careful, I had a blade that I threw into mine with some ceramic disks, and it ate the tip of the hardened blade before it gave it any finish:) silly me!!!
