    Very cool! What did you blacken the steel with?

    I just dipped it in Ferric Chloride until it was dark and even, then I threw it in a ceramic media tumbler I have at work for a few minutes. I originally had intended on cold bluing but, it looked like poop. I couldn't get it nice and even. I was pleasantly surprised how the etching turned out.
