    5160 full tang, with black and orange micarta scales. The blade was ferric chloride etched then tumbled.

    Nice clean knife. Keep them coming. Your media must have been fairly sharp like crushed rock or scrap steel? Have you ever done anything else like stonewashing or using softer metals that transfer like brass or copper? I did an experiment on a guard using pennies ( in my clothes dryer lol) and got some interesting results. It ended up being more pinkish than the orange I was hoping for but might have looked better with aging. Then again I suppose over time galvanic corrosion would have taken its toll.

    Prevenge-The media I used is ceramic in a plastic tub that I roll around on my lap. This is all I have used to date. I haven't done a lot of tumbling so far.
