Did this video help you?

John Burnett: This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

schlaznger: You can force a patina by boiling vinegar and dip the blade in it. After the blade has dried hit it with metal polish. It's durable and very nice. Just fyi if you want to try it

BUSHMANMIKE SHEDHUNTER: That blade looked very tight. Wood must have swelled. Nice try though. 

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

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

MrTechgeeknerd: Not the most useful patina but it looks nice, at least for me.

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.

PvTLink234: It's looks like you killed it. Aren't the dark dots a bit deep?

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 .

rev myk: pretty

Draco Venit: I love this knife and own several. I would also suggest Svords knives esp the "Peasant Knife".

flosilk1: All people run after a clean knife, but you make it dirty

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

olddj66: Die Musik ist absolute Scheisse, das Messer auch! 

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

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 Koeberlein: OK but why? 

Johnny Headstack: 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.

FSBushcraft: to use vinegar you have to put the blade in the vinegar and let it sit for a bit....

Nomans land: The point of all this escapes me. IMO it does not make the blade more attractive, nor is it decorative.

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 steel)

ⒸⓗⓐⓇⓛⓘⒺ: 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. :)

RagingMammoth Ayy: 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?

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. etc.?

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 place. .

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 anymore.

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.
