You can do for next time, and you can always add the resin later.
It just looked like the metal of the barrel had some differentiations in the metal that may be exposed with an acid bath.If you have a scrap of barrel left over could be worth a shot ;-)
Wondering if you acid treated the blade, you may get patterning.You'd have to polish the blade up quite a bit, but it could be interesting.Maybe with the next knife you make.
Novel idea, I like itCA is not water proof, so if it gets wet with sweat or wet by some other means the glue will fail.An acrylic would be good to use to make it more lasting, maybe use up to 3000 grit paper to get a nice surface before coating in resin, then use up to 3000 again to make it really awesome.Good job, keep it up.
Did it a couple of times, bought a nice telescopic magnet, the steel had not even achieved critical temperature, so the magnet stuck to the steel before I could react, then it was destroyed as a magnet.However don't take my word for it.https://www.apexmagnets.com/news-how-tos/magnet-experiments-what-happens-when-a-magnet-is-heated/
