Stumbled upon this thread, and it's compelled me to stop lurking and register an account... Man, your blades are beautiful!
I've always wanted to try my hand at making my own, but whenever I think about it, I get stuck on what kind of sealant / finish to use.
Do you use a poly on these? An oil? Any tips would be appreciated!
I seal the face and edges of the blades with an acrylic varnish, but not the handles. On the handle I just use a bit of wax to bring out the colors sometimes. But if you do want to start making blades, I think that the kind of sealant you use is the least of your concerns 😅.
