The horseradish patina is easy.  I do it on some of the knifes I make.   You polish the steel up a bit then you dab the horseradish on the bare steel.  Leave it on for 10 minutes wash it off with water.  Do this a few times.  I usually do it 4 to 5 times for a knife. It will give a dark patina like an old carbon steel kitchen knife. I read about it in the 50$ knife shop book.  He also said he uses mustard.  I have not tried the mustard myself though.
