Jafnadr, Colab be Kenon Rain and Jared Stier


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

This has been a LONG time in the making but I am just got the blade for Kenon, a lovely pattern welded blade. Of course he did the forging of the blade and I am doing the finishing work.

 

Once this is done we will be putting this up for auction. All the money will go to charity for deserving artists.

 

We will have more pics I just started working on part today.

hahaha, Don't call this a colab dear sir :) your doing all the work!

 

That blade has been kicking around since I first learned pattern welding, literally waiting on my laziness to get it sent out :rolleyes:

 

The wood is walnut.. and Mr. Stier and I will be doing some slightly more epic colab work in the near future ;)

Man Kenon, you got the sweet side of the deal. You get forge it, and then send it off to someone for the mind-numbing finishing and polishing.

Keep us posted!

Well I, in no way, consider creating art mind numbing.

 

I have the blade at 1000 grit and will do 1500 and 2000 tomorrow. I have the wax blanks cut and started to shape them, and I started to carve the handle

You need smaller chisels (judging from the ones in the picture) :). nice polish and carving.

 

I have only ever used this size and my exacto knife for carvings. I have not ran into any issues

Really? oh :huh:. I guess I just like smaller ones to fit into all the little gaps. A use an exacto knife as well. This will be cool!

It had been so long since we talked about it so I figured while I was there might as well go ahead and do it. I have the handle 90% carved. I have to into work today and row with the other slaves so I doubt much more will get worked on until next monday

When carving the handle...is the next step after this to sand the 'edges' down rounded, then apply any textures you want in the relief?

 

Looking really good =D. Kind of reminds me of this:

Though in looking at the two...the carving is very different lol.

exactly, I like deep relief, but it just depends on what you want

some people leave them hard lined but I like to round everything. That takes longer than the cutting out for me. And thank you :)
