    I will send them to heat treat soon, after that i would like to do a stonewash finish and i was wondering if you can help me buying the right tumbler/media..
    I was thinking about that with ceramic media:

    After heat treat and sanding, I give AEB-L a soak in ferric chloride until a medium grey colour (about a minute) and roll them around in a tube of road crush from the road. Your soak times may vary as I make my own ferric chloride. Perhaps experiment on a sample first.
