I just put some white pearl kirinite on a Damascus blade. Can I dip this back into a ferric chloride solution without it staining the kirinite? Unfortunately I do not have a scrap piece of the white to see it it stains it...
Scrap the knife?! That's a little bit extreme, isn't it?Can Kirinite tolerate acetone? Being an acrylic product, I would have thought acetone will dissolve it slightly, leaving the surface hazed. I suggest trying on a scrap first.
Thanks for that testimony. Mine was simply a chemistry opinion without specific experience with the Kirinite polymer, and why I just jumped right to saying scrap the knife.kirinite and acetone. So far I've never had any trouble using acetone to clean up epoxy on kirinite scales, no hazing that I've noticed.
Kirinite and Fcl. Sorry, can't say. Never tried it with the white pearl.
