Acid Etching The Knife Blade Tutorial




What do you think about this video?

Kit Slagle: Is there a tape or something you can use for more precice lines?

TheByrdWhoLovesRock: What kind of container can I pour the acid into that won't dissolve or anything? 

guloguloguy: Perhaps it might be easier to just wrap good Electrical tape (Scotch 33) over the cutting edges, and other portions of the blade that need protection from the acid etch (Ferric Chloride). Then, paint over the edges of the tape with the 'nail polish' if needed. I like the "Flame" effect and this technique offers a lot of potential for anyone who can 'draw' fairly well! Thanks!!!

Tamás Szalai: hy! what is the etchant with other word??? because the translater is dont know! but I from Hungary...

Juan Buseghin: which acid is

yp erit: Nice video, thank you for the inspiration. Only if I use the black material will not corrode? Please advise me what can I do against corrosion. I can not English, so I use google translator, sorry for deficiencies in speech.All the best.

Samuel Gruskiewicz: you wrote 156 cm lol

Optimus Prime: Thank you so much for the quick reply! I didn't think it would happen so quickly, I really appreciate your concern with my question and thank you for this masterpiece tutorial!

knives save lives: is it necessary to first clean the blade with acetone? if yes, why? if i don't have acetone what other household product will work?

npj2597: That looks amazing I'm just getting into knife making and started with your tutorials and I love the knives you send out like the one to cutlery lover

havocdaemon: That was absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe how amazing that turned out even though you did such a quick job for the video! I am definitely going to be using this right away! Thanks so much for sharing!

jacob young: wtf thats badass

devindooo: @gavkoo You should use nail polish pens for more intricate details.

Blaze Kush: that came out sick

D3mang3l: Can you then follow up an Etch like you did with vinegar Patina? Or will the difference between the Etch and the non etched surface be harder to spot? Say for example I wanted a Patina coating for preservation, and Etching for Decoration? Is that possible? GREAT videos by the way I learned a LOT already.

pyrastome: What kind of Acid is this?

Gavko Knives: you can use that acid over and over for a long time

Hambali Dikko: pure awesomeness

Gavko Knives: i guess so. only one way to find out. try it :)

powerhousephg: this is great

online12plus: can you do it with stainless steel?

Knives RUs: thanks buddy just did this on my spartan, have it up soon

Angelique Dollar: Tell me the truth Gavkoo. Does "Ladder Goat" mean anything to you?

xKaidoh: Got it, thanks for the info. Diluting the acid would have the same lightening effect as well correct?

Clayton lanz: FERRIC CHLORIDE WORKED ON A2 TOOL STEEL FOR ME RADIO SHACK PCB ETCHING

Gavko Knives: @jackd96jackd96 You can do it on bead blasted as well

craze wolfe: Can u use the same acid to etch another knife, or do u have to dump the acid out and refill it every new knife? Thanks

pokenNtoken: No, not a sharpie. They have paint markers at the craft store. I think they will work.

Daniel --: I had my doubts looking at that polish right before the dunk....but it came out pretty good. Thanks for sharing this. Now to go etched ALL the knives in the kitchen.

josh johnson: What kind of nail polish did u use on the blade was it expensive or just cheap like 199 just making sure that the concentration is the same with all nail polish

58belvedere: real nice video eat job

MScMarauder: LOVE IT!

Clayton lanz: RADIO SHACK PCB ETCHING MIXTURE WORKS ON A2 TOOL STEEL!!!!

coperman11: Hi Cavko I would be much obliged if you let me know what ACID you use Thanks from Greece

Gavko Knives: @TANG2864 My custom friction folder

Gavko Knives: @pup9et Wd40

Sean Ives: A work of art. well done.

Mathew Culbertson: Great Job.

pavol molnar: cool, thank you..

john smuth: Love the accent man, Great video thanks!

JSMcustoms: One folders with a stop pin, do you need to protect where the stop pin contacts the blade as well as where the lock contacts the blade?

Cyrus Craven: thanks for the video

kevin bandfield: will this take off a dlc on a blade or does it have to be stonewashed first?

Enoc Olmeda: beautiful job. God bless.

geohiker0175: This is really cool, gave me some great ideas for my own knives and axe heads. Thanx.

Darkestsides: Your girlfriend must love you.

Gavko Knives: @angel mclean no idea what are you talking about

xKaidoh: Hi Gav, quick question, if you had left the blade in the acid for a shorter period of time, would the etch have been a lighter initial color?

Brendan G: Nice paracord btw

transamman28: where do you get your pivots?
