That's so cool, thanks for all that info! One more question if I may, since this is a thread about patinas, how has the patina response been for you? Natural or forced etc...?
No worries. Thanks Jon. :)

I’ve had all three of the K390 releases so far (Edgematters Pingo, Urban, Police).

I find K390 to take a patina readily when new - it’s only slightly more corrosion resistant than the simple carbon steels or 52100 and Superblue.

In terms of the non stainless steels I have in Spydies, and how quick they are to patina, I’d rate them roughly as follows.

52100 and Superblue.
K390
M4
Maxamet
Cruwear

I just treat K390 the same as a simple carbon steel blade, regarding maintenance and oiling.

I don’t tend to force patinas, although I do intentionally use new non stainless knives on food prep like slicing and peeling fruit and veg, until the patina is well established.

That's about what I reckoned, and of course I'm sure the heat treatment protocol has much to do with reactivity as well. Thanks again!

Thanks Barry!

C'mon folks, let's see some patina shots! I know there's a bunch of Maxamet and 4V and M4 out there at the moment. Anyone getting any patina on their Cruwear users? There's gotta be some fantastic looking 52100 blades by now!

Very cool, PeaceInOurTime. HAP40? That patina on the cladding is very interesting as well.

Thanks! Sorry, I just now saw this. Yes, it is the Cutlery Shoppe exclusive Endura in HAP40.

I started out just letting it naturally patina, which was coming along nicely, but then I decided to see how it would look using sulfuric acid over the entire blade. I'm happy with the results. :cool:

Huh, that's very cool, I've never seen a sulphuric acid patina before. Did you just wipe it over with a paper towel or something? What sort of solution did you use?

I just "blotched" it on the blade using a small cotton swab several times until I was satisfied with how it looked. I suppose wrapping the blade in a soaked paper towel may have produced a more uniform pattern, may have to try that with another knife.

After only one day of use, this Police 4 is developing a Patina far faster than I expected.

This is after some kitchen use - cutting fruit, veggies, and meat. I guess the apple, pineapple, onion, and beef are having the desired effect.
