2x wrought damascus Gyutos


Recommended Posts

Don't think I shared these 2 I made earlier this year, They are Hitachi Blue2 core, with Ni barrier, and a cladding of wrought iron and a high chrome bandsaw blade 'damascus' - from memory about 100 layers per side. 

The 'K' tip ended up in the scrap pile die to a slight weld flaw, which was a shame as it kind of forged itself to that shape (it was my first 'k' tip!) - Ill make another though. 

The traditional profile is still waiting for a handle! 

Both blades are about 220 length.

All the geometry is forged in, only the lower bevel ground. They look a bit washed out in the pictures, but there is quite a bit going on in the metal. I will probably re-finish the survivor with a kasumi lower bevel, I did a rough stone finish on it before I went the ferric route, and it looked a lot better than it currently does!
