Feb. 11, 2021

In a recent video, YouTuber Kirill Runz demonstrates how to use ferric chloride to etch your one-of-a-kind design onto an everyday axe.

Valentine’s Day is Sunday. Did you remember to get your loved one a special gift? Of course not. If you’re like me, then you’re breaking out in a cold sweat just thinking about the holiday. Maybe you’ll run to your local drugstore and purchase an overpriced stuffed bear holding the world’s smallest box of chocolate.  Maybe you’ll visit a florist who ran out of red roses days ago but could offer you a bouquet of chrysanthemums instead. Or you could think like a child and make your partner something from the heart. And what says “I love you” more than an axe with a decorative scene etched on the blade. In a recent video, YouTuber Kirill Runz demonstrates how to use ferric chloride to etch your one-of-a-kind design onto an everyday axe.
