A current product is sold under the Birchwood Casey name. They make different blackening liquids for different metals. 

It should be available from Brownells Inc at 515-623-5401. It should also be available at mcmaster.com

Not sure if it is the same, but go to a gun store and ask for the cold bluing kit.  The kit includes a cleaner and chemical bluing agent which on small brass pieces will look black.  This is used to touch up bluing on gun barrels etc.

Decades ago there was a product on the market called Blackinit. The purpose of this product was to put a blue/black finish on metal. When the product initially come out it was advertised as an alternative to painting brass locomotives.
Ther was a replacement product that came on the market years later also called Blackinit. I tried this product several
years ago and found it to be unsatisfactory as it just rubbed off of gthe metal. I spoke to Richard Hendrickson at the time and he eleued to a similar experience.

In my stash of old products I found a partial bottle of the original product. I used it on a bell pull cord for a brass engine this morning. It worked perfectly. Does anyone know anything about the original formula?
