Welcome Home

Yucatecan knife maker JD Ware, custom large lock back with bull horn covers and coin silver (US quarter) shield. The 3.375" blade is O1 with a “French grey” treatment. This big boy (weighing in at a full 8 oz) originally had lignum covers. Unfortunately, they developed nasty splits at several of the pins. Jeff took those off and replaced them with some nice bull horn for me.

Thanks Ron.  JD likes to French grey his O1 blades.  It acts, much like a patina, to inhibit rust ... to an extent.  Not sure of his exact method.  But, most likely he applies a coating of phosphoric acid in some form or another (Brownell's blue stripper, naval jelly, ... or maybe even some type of toilet bowel cleaner that contains phosphoric acid).  Certainly looks nice, though!!

Here are a couple more pics:

Wow, Dennis! I love the way that knife looks! I'm not familiar with the "French grey" treatment, per se. But I love the funky effect it gives to that knife...especially married to those horn scales! That's a half a pound of eclectic beauty! Suh-weet!
