    That looks very cool! Congrats!
    Ammonia?
    Do you have to seal it to keep the patina where it is?

    Thank you!

    I'm not going to seal it. I'm gonna let it progress and continue on its own!

    Wonderful razor. I have 2 Karve razor sets with 5 plates. I'm enjoying watching the tarnishing process but it's very slow. My tarnish is a darkening but nothing dramatic. Could you post updated photos and give an instruction guide to your process? Thx

    Here's what mine is looking like at this point. [​IMG]

    Here's the latest tarnishing of three different KARVE items, all having different exposure time with water. The new OC comb is brand new as of this photo. 1551759098760707.jpg
