All three are the same blade blank but by changing configurations and handle materials you get very different results. Things that are the same....

Hammer forged appearance

Black oxide finish

Come with combo kydex/leather sheath shown

What grit do you polish it down to and what do you use to darken it? I've tried vinegar, but I can only do it outside and my grill just doesn't work to keep it boiling hard enough with out using a bunch of the gas. Also, even after scrubbing with simple green then soaking in acetone, it comes out uneven. Beautiful work as always!

That is what I use to darken them. As far as grit finish I take it down to 320-400 on most. Some of the knives I take to 600 but not many.
