So i was searching and didn't notice a patina thread.
Would be cool if everyone could post pictures of
natural and forced patina s and how you did it.
I wish i had one to start the thread but i just got my new knife last night.

I just use the flat of the knife to mash a banana into a nice gooey consistency. I then spread the mash into the rough shape of the knife, lay the knife on the mash and work it into that a little, then pile the rest of the mash on top of the knife so it's in a "banana cocoon" - totally covered. You'll need to experiment with how long to leave it in the banana mash. Try 15 minutes to start. Big knife, small bananas - you might need 2 bananas, etc.

ACE <> Here's a 240Kono White #2 with a twice forced mustard patina. I used dijon thickened with mustard powder. I cut out two strips of small bubble wrap to fit both sides of the blade. I then spread an even & thin layer of mustard mix on the blade. Next, I laid the wrap cutouts gently in place with no lateral movements. Once in place, I evenly distributed downward force on the wrap to disperse the mustard. Let rest. Wash off the blade with a baking soda solution. Dry.

The patina could be transposed by spreading the mustard on a surface other than the blade & then dipping the bubble wrap onto it. Next you would apply the mustard dipped wrap to the clean blade, but only gently depress it in this case.

Ok... then after that I polished the blade with a metal polish, Wenol. This evened out & faded the pattern. Then I did another mustard patina over the first pattern, but applied with a damp cloth in abstract dabs. Then finished the same way.

Got these back for a sharpen and the customer was interested in a mustard patina. I liked the natural patina he had from use, so I'm adding before and after pics. For the boldest pattern a paste mustard does really well, dabbed on with a piece of damp t-shirt material.
