So, Just got this back from a vendor who does beadblasting work.
I'm not sure I like the satin finish.
I think it's cool, the beadblasting was done well (evenly) etc.
I didn't like the bling factor on the original finish and not sure about the satin finish. Maybe I would prefer brushed.
Either way, just want to share pics:
