Any clue why that is it seems like they would know the benefits. In a land that prides itself on beautiful things I thought a rainbow patina would be appealing. Who would of thunk it? I would love to sell flits over there. Peace jmbullman

There is a pic of my fujiwara 270 mm sujihiki with a mustard forced patina in the box that says no thumbnail.

I haven't had much luck getting good pictures of patina myself.

This is the only decent one I've gotten over the years. Masamoto Carbon, natural patina from a steady diet of fish over a couple months

This- Natural patina on the Tojiro ITK Shirogami 210mm Gyuto. I took the picture because I just received my Buho Funayuki today and wanted to have a pictorial size reference with something most people are familiar with.

Man those forced patinas look beautiful. Stunning even. Does anyone know why mustard is the food of choice when doing this? I guess it's the educator mind that I have that wants to know.

Mustard has acids and stuff in it that etch/react to the steel. Some use Vinegar plain, but the mustard is thicker and will stay in place for more pattern manipulation.
