Revenge of New Stuff

Recommended Posts

Hello:

Here is this last week's work..One worked and the others are what I call a pattern fail.. well.. as I have said before..experience is what you get when you don't get what you want so...while they turned out OK as a knife in general they are not what I wanted...  Materials are 1095/L-6 and a small amount of meteoric iron..  

Now the one that worked was the one I was sure wouldn't..that is the wavy feather pattern..THAT one did work and I think it came out pretty spiffy..I just wish I could make a longer piece cause a full length sword in this pattern would be totally unreal..It was a real PITA doing this pattern and I think I found a way that isn't so nerve wracking...More on this later once I work it out and get things sorted..

Hope these pics work..

This old man is back to work...

JPH

Absolutely love the guillon dagger.  Is that some more of your famous bovine ivory for the handle?

DL: 

Yes, you are 100% correct SIR!!  That Is the very rare and unusual Bovine Ivory from the wild and woolly Bovines that once roamed over  the American continents  a while ago...

Note: their descendants are still running wild here today.. but they are seldom seen..(case in point: When was the last time you have ever  seen a  Bovine in the wild??)

Y'know, you're right!  I'm surrounded by domesticated bovines, but nary a wild one to be found. :lol:

That bendy feather pattern is AWESOME!  I mean, feather is a cool pattern anyway, but that undulating core is seriously cool.  Wonder if you could end-stack several billets to get the length?  I mean, it would show, but maybe you (not me!) could match the pattern close enough that it wouldn't be a glaring thing...

Yay;). Good to see these JPH. Failures or not, I like them but the feather is something else. As for wild bovines, one of my lecturers used to say Brahmans should be classified as game and not cows.

Holy cow that wavy feather pattern is beautiful.  So glad you're back in the swing of things in the new place!
