Does anybody know anyone that refinishes damascus putters? I have one that is raw and I’d like to actually have a finish put on it but still be able to see the beautiful grain of damascus. Preferably someone with damascus experience.... Thanks!!!

    Shouldn't be too hard all it needs it a dip in ferric acid or whatever acid treatment is used and the grain will come through.

    Some treatments will still allow the grain to show....just nothing that completely coats the old layer like a polymer or copper plating...

    some gun shops that do certain finishes on slide work have a cerakoter apply a clear cerakote. Just a possibility to add to the list...

    Pics added! I think it’s over etched.. I just want a smooth finish in it but want to keep the pattern.

    See with that you might not be able to get a smooth finish depending on the 2 metals used or if they can the pattern will be very faint due to not being in the etching treatment long.

    The other thing is they'll have to grind that down and you're gonna lose some weight on that head and even then you may end up with the same results if that's the quality of the Damascus used.
