I introduce myself and present my last work

17 posts in this topic

Hello guys, I introduce myself, I am Jesus, from Spain. I have been reading you for a long time, learning everything I can from this magnificent hobby (for me).
I've only made a dozen knives and three or four knives so this part of the forum is my job. I would like to present you my last work, it is a sanmai of O1 and 15n20. The handle is composed of nickel silver , camel's bone, brass, water buffalo horn and springbok horn. I regret not being able to say the measurements but before they could do that they took it out of my hands, an acquaintance wanted to buy it.
Thank you, I hope you like it and greetings.

P.D: Sorry my english please.

Your English is far better than my Spanish so don't worry about it.  That is an excellent looking knife.

Thanks for watching. 
I have many things to improve, including the contrast in the steels, I don't get a dark center with clear sides.

Mucho gusto senor. Este nabajo es muy bueno. Tiene usted fotographias de su taller? Estoy interesado en que herramientas utiliza alguien en otro pais .

Mi perdon. No hablo Espanol, mais yo hablo poquito Mexicano!  :D

Pero busque más gris en el O-1, esto es muy difícil porque O-1 tiene mucho cromo. Utilice un ardiente sin níquel o cromo y ponerlo en ácido o cafe

Ain't Google translate a wonderful thing?

Thanks for the advice.

In my previous work I also had problems of contrast, in this case the steels were 1095 and 15n20. Something in the manufacturing fails that I am not able to get a good contrast.

I am delighted to be part of this family, thanks a lot. 
Joshua I'm on vacation and I do not have pictures of my workshop but it's basic, a belt grinder and a gas forge made by me, an anvil rail, hammers and tongs. I am building an electric oven to be able to fine tune the heat treatments and be able to work with demanding stainless steels.

Very nice work for a basic shop. I still would ike to see some photos if you have the opportunity. We have a spot for showing your shop. It didn't make it too far, but it is still there: https://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?/topic/32847-shop-photo/#comment-317532

I think Jesus said that was a San Mai blade. So what you see as a Hamon, is actually the O-1 core poking out of the 15N20 jacket.

Simonet as Joshua says, the line that can be seen is the transition between the two steels of the sanmai, in this case O1 and 15n20. 
Joshua my current workshop could be perfectly the size of the WC in many workshops, jjjjjj. This winter I plan to build a new workshop to be able to work more comfortable without tripping over everything.

Greetings.
