I think the blade etch is actually a shallow stamp. Obviously some of the coloration might be lost but I don't think you'll lose the texture.

Was the etch on the main blade effected too? All the blades look fantastic!

Surprisingly, the etching survived quite well. Perhaps due to its deep etching cut?
