Thanks! I think it turned out pretty good, but I'd like it even darker -- I'm not sure that sulfuric acid can get it much darker, though.

What if you roughed it up with some 220 grit sandpaper first?

That may have worked better. I'm planning to give the same treatment to another knife and will give that a try. Thanks!

Glad to see some more pictures here of the Byrd hawkbill. It still is my favourite yard workhorse. Lot sof fibrous materials so no plain edge knife comes close.
