    Pattern welded Carver

    Yes I think you are right Justin it would make a very good fighter. Ross, the distortion in the layers was mainly done by the forging, the shiny layers were M 42 and I just wanted to try out if I could weld it, it came out better than expected so I forged the blade out of it. Richard

    Another Mosaic Hunter

    Yup Wes that is a ferrule, an oval tube that partly fits over the Giraffe bone and the guard hard silver soldered on, I cut a thread at the end of the tang and make up a "nut" a treaded tube with a cap on it.
