Applying the Super Blue requires gloves, nitrite gloves, like
Smurfs wear! This stuff is pretty nasty if you get it anywhere
other than the metal.
Left side waiting, right side done.
Once all the chisels were blued and the residue washed off with
water then meths, it was time to protect the bluing with
Barricade. This is a fantastic product. Not only does it
disperse moisture but it also cures and leaves a barrier (hence
the name) against further oxidation.
The bluing has come out rather nice. Of course the shinier you
can get the steel the better the finish. But I wasn't all that
bothered about looks - it was the protection I was after.
And there you have it...
Chisel fettled, blued and barricaded for the winter... Nice!
