    Contacted Mettech by email and had an answer in a half hour, very prompt service.

    I have placed an order so if anyone else is thinking of getting the product now would be a good time to call as the order will be going in to their supplier within the next two weeks.

    Has anyone done a count of the number of blades that can be treated with a kilogram? say 6" blade or 10" overall

    I single dip and let most of the drips go back in the can. I'd estimate I've done 20, mostly kitchen knife sized blades with about 100 ml. Hardly notice it going down in the can.

    Well that is good news then I might get a couple hundred knives per can depending on size and that is easily double what a 20' roll of foil can do.

    Have four cans on the way of Condursal Z1100 if anyone is interested in a can drop me a message

    Just dipped my first knife and had it sanded to a 400 and 800 grit finish. for a 9.5" blade and a bit of spilling I used 0.2 ounces or about 160 blades per can or $1.125 each and compared to a 20' roll that might do 80 blades or $1.70 each unless you double wrap. Odd thing is I am almost out of foil and less than fifty blades so I had used far more than I should have.

    If mine come out as clean as others I have seen I am going to be one happy camper

    Love this stuff although when they say 600C they mean 600, put a blade in furnace and temperature dropped below 600 for a few minutes and cooked the coating on. Nothing terrible bad that a little sanding couldn't fix and I think next knife will go into the furnace with a full 800grit finish.
    Going to be using this on carbon steel as well and will add a 1200F step into the cycle for putting blades into the furnace.

    I do get the strangest colors some times and others just bare clean steel. Thinking I need to improve my pre dip cleaning.
    Seriously I like this color and wish somehow I could make it permanent. Looks like three Harmon's going on I would love to see this on a piece of carbon steel all etched up and will try and duplicate with A2 steel sometime soon
