General etching procedure

(YouTube videos are a great resource for directions)

- Degrease blade?with acetone.

- Mix ferric chloride with distilled water?(one part water, two parts acid) -OR-?mix 60% ferric chloride and 40% white vinegar. Carefully pour solution into plastic?(or pyrex)?dish (some folks also use a PVC Pipe that has been sealed on one end as a contanier for etching).

- Submerge the blade in the acid mixture, and?let sit for a few minutes.

- Remove to see the etched?pattern.

- Rinse?the blade with warm water and (if you want a deeper etch) put it back in the acid untill the desired etched depth is achieved.

- Etching time required depends on how deep you want the etch to be?and what kind of?contrast you want.

- On the last dip, remove blade from acid and allow the black oxidation to stay on the blade rinse in warm water & liberally?cover the blade?in baking soda to neutralize the acid (washing it in Windex will also work to neutralize the acid)

- Dry the blade off, and wipe down with WD-40. You can also sand off the oxidation with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper, if desired.
