To paraphrase Thomas Edison, I haven't had any failures, but I've sure found a lot of ways not to refinish Damascus barrels. I have five sets going at present and three are ready for logwood boil to bring out the black/white finish. I will post more pictures when I finish these.

Sorry about the poor photos. The shadows appear as if I did not get the rusting down to the ribs. I'll try and get better pictures after the boil.

I hear you, Harry. Tough to get the photos right. I have a sister-in-law in that industry, and she's describing more photography gear than I want to invest in. Good luck sorting it out.
