Cody Hofsommer Posted October 27, 2012 Share Posted October 27, 2012 (edited) This is my first attempt at a hamon. W1 steel, about 10", I ordered some 1500 gritt silicon carbide that should be here next week. This is sanded to 1000 gritt, etched and polished with flitz. I'm pretty stoked how it came out, I think it will get better with the silicone carbide. Any advice or critique welcome. <a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/knives/?action=view¤t=D79D4B06-89AE-42EE-895D-DE877551076A-1137-0000018B3C7D4648_zpsddf312b6.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/knives/D79D4B06-89AE-42EE-895D-DE877551076A-1137-0000018B3C7D4648_zpsddf312b6.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a> Here is a pic of it clayed up. <a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/knives/?action=view¤t=AB8AB8ED-B46E-4D92-9F74-6585A10147CF-1137-00000182D40336AF_zpsec30e775.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/knives/AB8AB8ED-B46E-4D92-9F74-6585A10147CF-1137-00000182D40336AF_zpsec30e775.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a> Thanks for looking, Cody Edited October 27, 2012 by Cody Hofsommer Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
