Kevin,

Northwestern University sends me student groups on occasion.

Last weekend I had four students in the shop and we made this blade. The stock for this blade began as a 3" round bar so there was quite a bit of processing before I could weld up the blade.

The project revolves around a stainless steel that is designed and sold by QuesTek Innovations and one of the marketing ideas is a seax blade.

Over the years I have explored pattern-welded billets with these steels.

This blade was commissioned by them and was delivered as you see for further processing later; I'll show photos as the blade is progressing in the future.

 

This was the first interaction I had with the company. It was written up in "Wired" Magazine in 2001

I have plans for more stainless composite blades.

Beautiful blade, Ric...neat to see that classic p-welding scheme done in stainless. It's like a Viking's sushi knife!
