    Almost boiling hot vinegar for about 5 minutes. Rinse. Repeat 3X...

    Started out like a shiny Opinel. Ended up a blued steel Opinel...

    Rinse it off in the sink in cold water while the vinegar heats up again.

    You don't have to cool the blade, rather you rinse the vinegar to stop the process. Check the color, then go again if you want more "blue"...
