What's up guys black sky survival and today I'm going to have just a quick video on how to do a force patina this is just a quick down and dirty way to do it and if you don't know what patina is whenever you take a carbon steel blade and you you know apply like vinegar which is a very acidic um to it to you.
Know put this coating on the blade and and just protect it from rust or help protect it from rust and stuff like that but this is a knife I got in the pocket box and it is like the Green River knives the old trade knives and it's carbon steel it's important you got to use carbon steel so you're gonna need a carbon steel knife you're also going to.
Need some type of vinegar and I like this highs Hans white vinegar and just a piece of aluminum foil and a paper towel and this technique is pretty cool because it is one down and dirty and - it kind of gives a pretty cool design but I'm going to us ball up that paper towel and take that vinegar and just kind of saturate the paper towel so just.
Saturate that paper towel then what we're going to do is is we're going to take that paper towel it's got the vinegar on it and just wrap it around that knife blade now see a lot of people what they'll do is is they'll you know use a big jar and fill it with the vinegar that's wasteful for one and it just get it done give a cool pattern and.
It just kind of you know does the whole blade black but I like that cool pattern that this does you know some people use mustard and stuff like that too but I just like this method so get it wrapped up make sure you don't wrap up the handle and then we're just going to do is just going to take and wrap and I'll leave no fool around it just.
Like that now we're just going to let that sit and uh you know thirty minutes our depends on however long you want to do it on the darker don't get and the more define the look will be okay so let's go ahead and take this unwrap this and show you guys what it looks like and we hadn't wait about maybe 30 minutes or so you see that patina forming we're.
Just going to watch this blade down you can use soap and water to just get it cleaned up you know but there you go guys you can see that let me bring it in closer you guys can see that patina and you see that that paper towel just gives it a good look a good kind of just unique look to it but there you go guys down and dirty.
Patina with a Heinz white vinegar you know suck it down ripe a paper towel and don't use a lot of vinegar like a lot of other methods does and just drive it at em full so you don't have stinky vinegar in everywhere and there you go guys protect your blade give it a cool look make sure its carbon steel as I said and wait however long.
You want to this is like I said about 30 minutes and see it gives it a gave it a good look you know you could leave it for our two hours but you know I don't want to overdo it I like to have that kind of unique look to it so hope this helps you guys if you're you know looking to do a patina and let's up to do a little something.
Different if you guys try this in the next day or two I posted this video just put take a picture and go to black Scout survival on our Facebook page and post a picture of your patina that you've done to your knife if I'd be interested to see what what Kyle your knives turn out so looking a little patina and please.
