It's astounding. I love it... The fit and flow is something I aspire to and this is a humbling inspiration.

WIELAND---Mighty fine!! Every part of it is just right for the rest.

 

The blade, the hamom, the solder, carving, fitting, sheath, the carving on the sheath all are just right.

 

Great job.

very nice - as always. I really enjoy studying your work. It is quite elegant.

 

any tips on how you polish to bring out those lovely hamons?

 

thanks for showing us this!

thank you all for your kind posts, I appreciate it, that you like my knife!

 

@tonn,

I use an industrial coating/isolation from a supplier for quenching gear (oven, other hardware and quenching oils and heat-treatment tools).

it´s name here is `LENIT`. normally used, where drilled holes in a part must stay soft for tapping a winding after the quench. it has a very fine grain for good forming.

you should find a sort of it in estonia too.

 

@kevin,

activity begins long before polishing- you know of course ;-)...

my polishing : sanding to 2000, then with ´chrome-polish´ from a carbody- supplier,

then some etchings in Fe3Cl, in between polish with `WIENER KALK`, similar to a fine pumice, finally with a very fine metall-polish.

 

best regards

gerhard

Once again I am not sure what to say , you make elegant look easy and I know it isn't. I just checked out your website again and it is inspirational to see your "Old Iron" section and see your evolution as a artist. - Todd
