Low-Profile, Non-Flashy Finish for Stainless Steel

I am now equipped to offer a bead-blast finish for stainless steel. It is especially good with micarta handles, as the micarta benefits from the process, too.
Here is a sample of what it can look like:

  1. this looks awesome i would consider doing this for my gerber lhr the ceramic coating is wearing off pretty bad looks like my uncles old quarter master knife and he had that threw vietnam

    • Anyone with a sandblaster and fine-grit ceramic bead media should be able to do this. However, it would be best to work cautiously, to make sure that the steel doesn’t erode away where the finish is missing, before the finish comes off. Might have to use a diamond stone or something to get rid of the finish. The sand-blaster takes the path of least resistance.
