My Artifex 52100 210 Gyuto is not terribly reactive. I did force a mustard patina on it just to try out the technique. I would rate it average on reactivity, compared to my other carbon knives.

I'd recommend just using the knife and let a patina develop. If you really don't like it, you can scrub it off and force a patina with a pattern if you like. BTW, coating both sides of the blade with heavily mashed up banana creates and interested patina as well. Let it sit for a good 30 minutes, then wash and dry.

It isn't very reactive. Why I got impatient ;) In the BDL made me do it thread I have some picture before and after mustard patina. The before shot was from 4 nights at work plus a couple night at home. Usually get a more colorful one after that many shifts at work.

I forced a few patinas on my elite carbon petty. I scrubbed them all off, lol. The knife has its own now, rather blue. I scrub all my carbon knives off completely every couple weeks. One time it got a black one from peeling about 30 pounds of tomato concasse. That poor little guy was practically smoking that day!
