thanks guys. Mason, the blade is just heat blued. the trick is to get a very even polish, completely degrease it, and heat it very evenly. for a blade you also have to use an alloy steel which is still hard enough at the temperature that the blue oxide forms - pretty much all carbon steels will blue at some temp, but most will be too soft. O1 comes out at around 58rc, just about perfect for a dagger.
