    Re: Can anyone identify this finish and how it's achieved?

    the description says its oil quenched, so it must have been heated evenly to between 293 and 315 degrees c and then quenched. the exact colour depends on the temperature , 293 gives a full blue, 315 gives a very dark blue. i guess experimentation will give the results you want.

    what you need will involve a pot of heated salt petre.
    there is a thread running in one of the other sections that covers this technique
