hitmankgmThe2nd: its perfectly fine to create a patina on a carbon steel knife. i know quite
a few of my knives where i had to put an all over patina on it because it
was starting to rust. if you live in a humid area, such as mississippi
where i live, youd have to give pretty close maintenance to the knife, or
it will surely be ruined by the humidity causing rust. does that mean youd
have to force a mustard patina on it like this? of course not, this guy is
being a complete idiot in this video. you can give your knife a patina by
cutting fruits, some vegetables, or other foods, but the best way to force
a patina on a knife to prevent heavy rust is to put the blade in a cup of
vinegar, and let it sit for maybe around 30 to 45 minutes. it will give an
all over patina to prevent rust damage, and you wont look like a complete
doofus like this guy
Lars Dahl: Should be titled "An Idiot's Guide To Ruining A Perfectly Good Knife".
Mustard is for sandwiches, not knives. They make 'em shiny for a reason.
MrTechgeeknerd: Not the most useful patina but it looks nice, at least for me.
PvTLink234: It's looks like you killed it. Aren't the dark dots a bit deep?
Vinnie Falcon: Aside from all of the obvious comments, the lighting in this video was
awful. Turn a few lights on next time.
Leszek Maruszczyk: Looks nice, but do You buy new mustard for this video? :P
Draco Venit: I love this knife and own several. I would also suggest Svords knives esp
the "Peasant Knife".
James Phillips: I guess I am missing the point of doing this. I get those marks forging the
blade and work to get rid of them. Why would I want them .
Major Marco: I didn't know Woody Allen made knife videos .
Karegan: I kinda like look of this knife. Makes it looks a li'l steampunk:D
Claudio Nagels: you just ruined an good knife
brutalbrital: never a good idea to patina on the knife edge , you should have taped it
. seen a few good patina's on YT , this isn't one of them
flosilk1: All people run after a clean knife, but you make it dirty
DAVEY BOY: this maybe a stupid question, I want to do this on my svord peasant and a
opinel no 10 but will the process weaken the metal?
TheMbn1972: Looks good
John Chase: Onion juice will put a dark patina on the steel very quickly.
I do not know if chemically it is the same as this, but my carbon kitchen
knives have no rust after 30+ years.
The first time it happened and I saw the steel turn black before my eyes I
freaked out because of ignorance.
The liquid with the oxidates in it taste terribly bitter and metallic, so
the carbon knives are not used for acidic foods any more, but I do not
bother polishing the blades to mirror perfection any more either.
Less work, and less trouble with flash rusting after washing.
olddj66: Die Musik ist absolute Scheisse, das Messer auch!
FSBushcraft: to use vinegar you have to put the blade in the vinegar and let it sit for
Nomans land: The point of all this escapes me. IMO it does not make the blade more
attractive, nor is it decorative.
John Koeberlein: OK but why?
Caleb Whittington: Looks good. Never heard of using mustard, good idea.
k123332: Music is putting me to sleep.
Ondřej Malinský: maybe because just the liquid is pure water and if you just let the blade
corrode in water the corrosion marks would not appear at random but they
would be very large covering most of the blade. But dont get me wrong - I
too think smearing mustard on a blade is stupid (+ it ruins the blade
ⒸⓗⓐⓇⓛⓘⒺ: This is freaking amazing, and that music is perfect for this project! Thanks
for the tip.
ducha123fly: @crack818 After five days, I can say that the corrosion resistance has
increased dramatically. It's not holding finger prints or getting rust
spots as easily... and I haven't even kept it greased; I ended up wiping
the TW25B off just as an experiment. :)
MrRagingMammoth: Congratulations. You have made a nice shiny knife, look terrible.
survivalist: @Zatxto Much rather have a tried and true knife than a shiny new blade.
Noah Hastings: Why the freak is an internet troll on here acting like he posted this video?
cammellone2: wtf man! why are you taking care so much about this knife? it's only an
opinel ! people like it because of it's efficency and mainly because it
costs less than a sandwitch with a beer
Romegyptian: Wow this is the perfect solution to my khukhuri blade which I wanted to
parkerize but couldn't because of the wooden scales that would probably be
ruined during that or any other process involving boiling the blade :)
Marlene Townsend: Does this work on other metals as well? i.e. brass, nickel silver, copper.
Pras Hutomo: Patina is ok,but wrong knife to use. IMO probably better with modern style
folders like benchmade,kershaw,boker,etc
T.R. PufnStuf: why the gay music?
gateman42: That looks like total crap! I hope you've learned something from this over
the last 2 years!
Hunts PlayThru: I wish mine was sparkly new like that. Mine is right here with me right
now. I always keep it by my bed.
Cody Sturgill: If you could afford it, Damascus steel is extremely rare, making it
extremely expensive, so if you can buy anything that is Damascus steel for
less then about $200 for a small knife, its fake
BumChucket_The_Great: Patinas are corrosion, but don't weaken the blade. and prevents occurence
of red rust
LOCOCUAUHTEMOC: Learn how to handle a knife
Wikipunani Nanani: okay okay, i can't take it any more Here's what you do: You initially use a
bean-sized glob and distribute it as thin as you can. Then you ADD to it as
needed. Taking away from it as you go means you just started in the wrong
OneEyePI: I LOVE these knives. Superb value.
PILGRIM.: turn that freaking music off.
Cody Sturgill: I'm gonna guess that you have never actually done this and can't, or simply
refuse to understand that it isn't like a game where you simply press a few
buttons and within an hour your done, making the steel alone would be a day
process, forging that into a blade would be another day or two process as
well. Otherwise the steel just turns out crapty and is good for nothing but
a wall hanger, and really no point to make something non-functional
Orlando Wynn: It's not about that, it's about increasing the steels lifespan and
prolonging the metal's health
Beachcrib: Patina is very protective on my carbon knives .. Keeps it from getting that
nasty red surface rust. So I let my knives patina for that minimal
protection . with out it... it's tough in the humid areas
BumChucket_The_Great: I heard it on a blade forum, and i just said something. no need to get so
angry. And i really dont have the time.
Peter Thomas: Okay, I have reported you to the music police. Fun video though.
Apple Stump Bushcraft: My #8 acquired a nice patina through about 5 years of use as a fish gutting
knife. The mustard method gives a pretty cool look, I must say, but no
memories of the big ones that didn't get away.
comaradella: I´m a cook and a knife freak from Argentina, and I tried yesterday, to do
the same on mi Opinel, and also on an Arbolito kitchen knife, but instead
of mustard I used a tiny Mc donald´s ketchup, sachet, I cut a very small
hole on it, so I could actually draw with it , as I pushed it out, the
tomato and vinager, or whatever it has, made wonderful colour contrast,
intense, try it out, I checked other brand ketchup, and it didn´t work so
josh viking: love the tunes!!! good vid
docwilkey: nice video, thanks for the info.
