Duplicating Older Finishes?
 
I'm wondering... is it possible to duplicate at home the translucent, glossy black finish of early Colts, which I believe is cabonia, without a gas furnace (using, for instance, a cooker, and then oil to quench it in. If so, what oil?

Also, has anyone ever tried to truly charcoal blue - with a fire and then rubbing down with lime / oil?
