Alex,thanks,these are some wild photos...Especially the ones in post # 195:Was that axe etched?(FeCl?Nital?(Хлорное железо?Азот?)...

The diversity is wild...Is it known why such stark variance in C-content(i presume that's the contrasting factor..)?Is it common,for similarly-dated objects?

Thanks again,and yes,if you have more photos,it'd be great to see as much as would be possible to post.


Jake, I have seen that look in my own hearth steel and also very old Swedish charcoal "iron". I guess it is just what not-very-well homogenized bloom of varying C % looks like. Apologies for reenforcing thread de-rail.
