Janne,

Interesting posting, nice work. How big is that ingot sitting on the vise ? It looks very large. Working ingots into bars with a small cross section...then flattening .....may give a very linear pattern?...or can the bar be spread enough to accent the water? Looking at your work and method of presentation, I assume Niko is there either holding the bar or the camera for you.

Would be wonderfull if there is less than 600km between me and Niko. :D

I met Niko at once, but we have lot of discussion via email and forums.

 

I like (decent :P )informative pic´s so e.g. PhotoShop is great tool

to help bring out results what I mean.

I found image processing, when saw few Niko´s Wootz pic´s

 

Both mother tongue is Finnish, maybe there is part of the reason this presentation issue :rolleyes:

 

 

I´m not sure but that ingot on the vise is A5 or A6/2,3kg, but it is Nro:7 for sure.

 

This cross section and linear thing I have my own studies, but not publish results yet.

But second Wootz(NH)blade what I made, I use twisting and too long soak(again :P) Not Good. :D
