    So you had to dunk the blade a few times to get that layered effect. Which end did you start at?

    Looks really good

    Looks awesome!
    Really good etching.

    Just wondering, doesn't the scales feel a bit too "thick" ?
    They look a bit to big on the third pic.

    That looks awesome!

    I think laminated steels are really neat, but doing this would allow you to keep with a great knife steel, while getting a really distinctive pattern on the blade.

    This gives me crazy ideas. :D

    That looks cool!
    One side looks like a mountainous, tree covered landscape.
    The other side looks like a city-scape in the background with mountains and hills in the foreground.

    What did you use as "etch-resistant". Was it regular nail-polish ?
