WIP Tamahagane folder


Recommended Posts

This is a liner lock I'm working on. I acquired some Tamahagane from a professor. The handle is Wrought iron from Daryl, and inlaid with silver and gold on opposite sides of the handle, with the frog hugging the pivot pin. I got the frog from Jim Kelso's tutorial the stitch still needs to be tamped down a bit.

Hi Andrew,

That looks like a new direction for you.

 

How many years do have left before your masters?

Say hello to Daryl forme.

Ric,

 

Daryl says hello back.

Last time I was at Hank's Ed gave me a folder lesson. I tried back locks first but I like this new style. I really enjoy chasing and repousse and hope to blend it into folders. I would like to try an automatic so if you know of any resources on the mechanism I would greatly appreciate that.

This is my last year, I will have my thesis in the spring.
