Modern rust bluing won't look like original rust bluing...

I'm guessing because I'll be using different chemicals than they did back in the day?

I'm using apple cider vinegar for my rusting agent, keeping the humidity up with a steam vaporizer, carding gently with steel wool. If the knife blade turns out with the look I'm wanting then shorty's goin in next.

I can't be the first one on here to have done slow rust bluing...I was just wondering of someone whos done it has any particular do's and don'ts...right now I'm just experimenting to see if I can duplicate the process I've read about on the internet, I was hoping to catch someone with firsthand knowledge of what I can expect.
Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it
