 Post subject: Forcing Patina on Blade with Kurouchi Finish

I want to force a patina on my CCK 1303 by removing the lacquer with acetone and doing a standard vinegar/mustard patina. However, I wondering if I have to take off the whole kurouchi finish or if I can just force the patina on the bottom half of the blade without the kurouchi finish.

Any reason I can't or shouldn't try to keep the kurouchi on? I figure I should be able to be careful enough when removing the lacquer to not harm the kurouchi.

No, no reason to remove the KU finish. I'd maybe take some blue painters tape and hide the KU finish as best as possible. Interesting idea...you've got to post pictures when you're done.
