    Read where someone used onions too. Patina slows rust but does not stop it. You still have to care for it.

    I got an Old Hickory like that at a garage sale for a dollar. It's one of my favorite kitchen knives.

    You can put a patina on a high carbon blade with all kinds of stuff. My favorite is probably yellow mustard since it's thick and you can just paste it over the blade. Pretty easy to make a pattern to it too, such as stripes. It will even pick up the texture of a paper towel if you wrap it in one that's soaked in something acidic.

    The patina is what they call bluing in the gun bidness.

    It's Fe O (iron II oxide) and it will form over time whether you accelerate with acidic substances or not.

    Rust is Fe2 O3 (iron III oxide). The presence of the FeO offers some protection from Fe2 O3 from forming, but you still need to take care of it.

    I think the patina also "roughs up" the surface, minutely, and it helps more oil to stay on the steel.


    I gave in to peer pressure and went to Amazon and got me one of those knives too.
    No matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up.

    A friend of mine's mother had a set of Old Hickory knives that I had never seen so I looked them up online and saw the big 10 inch (Aerosmith ?). Just had to have it. You will need to sharpen it better when you get it but it is a most awesome knife. LOL
