    [​IMG][​IMG]Completed this Mora handle project today. Sanded, scorched, several coats of boiled linseed oil, and a final coat of homemade fix'n wax. I am very pleased with the outcome for this outdoor user. Thanks for looking.

    are those striped on the blade made with mustard or something like that?

    the handle looks very good, much better than stock.

    How did you force that patina? It looks beautiful.

    The striped like patina was put on with plain old yellow mustard. It was my first attempt at something like that and I am very pleased with the way it turned out. Thank you for the compliments.

    Hi! How do you use the boiled linseed oil, please? Do you put the handle in it when the oil is cold/warm/hot? For how long do you keep the handle submerged? How many coatings do you recommend? :)

    I usually just rub it in with a cloth a couple of times till i like the look (done floors, seats and handles on various tools this way) and i prefer to finish with a good wax. As long as the wood is clean and sanded properly it should take just fine. Make sure you let the rags you use for the stuff dry lying flat and not all crumbled up or they will catch fire.

    I just rubbed several coats and let it dry between each application. Then finished with the wax.
