Ancient patinas

Recommended Posts

Question for all u people out there smarter than me (which is likely most everyone).  I have made a Sassanid historical sword for someone.  He wanted it to look new but historically be accurate.  The question is about the patina.  I know they didn't use modern bluing or other current techniques, so did they patina the blades or just keep them oiled?  I know antique blades get patina with age, but could not find any records that said if they were patinated when made.  Anyone know?
