Acid etching swords

Postby Scoobing » 23 Nov 2012 08:40

I'm thinking of personalising some of my swords further and wanted to know if anyone had any experience with acid etching their sword blades and how to go about it, or if anyone has any recommendations as to how to produce a similar effect if acid etching is not suitable.

Also does anyone know where I could get it done ?

I am planning to give it a go. Look on YouTube for videos showing how to etched steel with vinegar and electricity.
