Interesting video. And I'm sure that Larry knows his business.
Here is a bluing product that I have used and really like.
I bought the kit that included the de-greaser, the cold blue and a bottle of oil. I've used it to touch-up cold steel. Should work even better on heated metal. The only question I have about the video is when Larry says to use a cotton ball to apply the bluing. The Van's instruction says to never use a cotton swab (Q-Tip) or cotton ball because it contains oil (lanolin) that will cause splotching. Using a cotton T shirt or an old tooth brush is recommended.
As for using scalding hot water and wiping it off with a cotton cloth, sound about right. I use scalding hot water to clean the barrel on my muzzle loader. It wipes off easily and the heat causes the remaining moisture to evaporate quickly. Then I apply oil, in this case, bluing.
