I've blued khukuri's. Just used cold blue and made sure the blade was clean. Didn't like it. The smell was irritating to me.

These 2 WWII HI Khuks I call my twins. The 17 1/4" with the Khaki pants I baby and the Brass Blacked 18" WWII I use and abuse as my experiment khuk. Hope the pic gives some idea of the brass when blackened.

I never tried to blue copper, but you can use cold blue on brass. Use acetone to clean it prior to bluing. I usually use it to give brass an aged patina, so after bluing I steel wool it back until I get the right effect. It knocks the yellow and shine off the brass and looks nice when done right.
