Just cut up some pork loin with my new CII from Carter. Oh wow, the results are way more dramatic than I was expecting. I wouldn’t even call this a forced patina. I just cut up the roast, served it, and washed the knife. I almost feel bad doing this to such a pretty knife, but it looks pretty wild at the moment.

I tried letting the patina develop a bit naturally on my new Mazaki hairline but it really wasn’t doing much. There must be some sort of coating or something on these. Or maybe I’m just impatient. I tried soaking in vinegar soaked paper towels but kind of hated how it looked. So after a little bit of Flitz it cleaned up nicely and now it’s very reactive. Another pork loin produced more crazy blue just like the CII. Family is getting tired of pork so I might need to find something else to play with haha...

This is a 220mm gyuto that I am making out of 52100...I took it up to the house to test with last nights' dinner. This is from slicing a grilled tri-tip and letting the juices stay on the blade during dinner.

What filter did you use on these photos? Looks pastel like.

Nice enjay! I find my Mazaki's patina better than any other knife I've owned so far!

Thanks, sir. I don't think it'll ever look this cool again so I'm glad to have taken some pictures that day.

A month later: more blue, and more orange, too. (Might some of that be rust? Feel free to diagnose.)

I have white steels with lots of orange patina. Just wipe it with a dry paper towel and if there is no color transfer to the towel you're good to go.
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.

Thanks, Jeff. I do that every once in a while and have yet to see any transfer so hopefully it's good. This Mazaki really is a little dynamite. Big fan.

My Mazaki looks pretty much the same. It seems to patina much more than any others I have

My Fujiyama B#2 Laurel developed a little of that as seen below and I could feel a little build up and resistance as I dragged my fingers across the surface:

I used a Sandflex Super Eraser to lightly buff the surface which removed the build up, resistance and reduced the color...I recommend them.
