Pure nickel for inlays?

Recommended Posts

The title pretty much says it. But I’m wanting to do a bit of inlay work on a non blade related project and that got me thinking of inlay work on knife handles. I think silver is pretty much the standard but can pure nickel work? This question is about inlay in wood of course.

Thanks, Jon

I don't know if the pure nickel I had was already a bit work hardened, but it did not want to move much under the hammer. I would think I'd crack the wood if I tried to inlay with it. But still it sounds like a neat idea, so hopefully someone more experienced with this will chime in soon.
