pH up is usually sodium carbonate, which is alkaline.

Re: Ate my Bradley 2

I did the same with my first Para 2 with ferric chloride. If you leave it soaking for too long it'll etch off enough steel to ruin the lock and pivot tolerances and it did. It would still lock but the lock bar was totally bottomed out and it had a lot of blade play in every direction. I sold it che...

Re: Ate my Bradley 2

I even had layers of tuff glide and tuff cloth. But I'm a very hot person and sweat alot, even around 180lbs it sucks badly at ...

Ate my Bradley 2

Doubt anyone else would ever do this but never use ph up as a acid to force patina. It ate my blade and no longer comes close to the original size. I'm a naturally sweaty guy and after years of daily use, i noticed some rust spots, didn't want it spreading figured I'd force patina. Bad bad bad idea,...
