Oroshigane Wakizashi from Argentina

Recommended Posts

Hello, for many years that I am member of this forum and very rarely I encourage to post in the. But wanted to show this wakizashi style shinogi zukuri forged in oroshigane, has 56 cm of sheet, has a thousand layers and was tempered in a traditional way. I hope they like it, little by little I'll go up some work if they like. Forgive my bad English. Best regards, Leonard

It looks beautiful to me, the steel in particular!  The hamon may be a bit low in places, hard to tell, but it's very active and cool!

Thank you very much for your concepts. If yes, the hamon is low, even if it is cooled in water. I think it was because the temperature was low (756 ° C). Later, after analyzing the material, the carbon content was only 0.45. It would have to be at least about 20 ° C to improve height. As little material we obtained did not make the selection for the carbon content and mix everything. I hope the next one goes better !! Thank you for comment, regards, leonardo
