    There are areas of pieces in matt black steel that i would like to smooth out and reapply the black, is this a simple process or is it plating etc?

    I don't know how SW blackens the steel prints. You should be able to darken it considerably using a torch. As the black is just oxidation any polishing or handling will wear it off over time. a layer or two of spray lacquer will keep it from wearing off and give it a good shiny look.
