Pattern Etched

This finish is by far my favorite on a blade that is intended to be used. The patterns are limitless and because the dark portions of the blade are below the lighter portions wear tends to be concentrated on the high spots as long as the pattern is "tight enough". This leaves the pattern visible and cool looking for quite a long time. On 1095 it is very important to keep the blade oiled with this finish.
