Hi Matt,

That is an impressive amount of control on the pattern and getting all the nooks and crannies to weld cleanly. I liked the sister blade when I saw it at the gathering, and I like this one. You definitely have your feet under you as an artist and craftsman.

Holy smokes dude! That's an awesome bit of kit.

Hey Matthew, I hope to see you at Blade this year. May I ask what materials you used and how etched?

 

thanks, Gary LT

I'll be at blade.. if I survive the shop this week getting ready anyway.. table 11Q. The materials are a mix of 1080 1095 and 15n20 the etch was a pain on this one . it was a lot of cycles polishing back to 1500 couldn't get the back ground to darken evenly so I left it bright.

This is a cool one Matt….. I like this etch result better than the dark dramatic look because I think it will still look good after it is used

(hopefully it will be )  …… and like the “scene” too……

 

I thought the video was a nice way of showing it ….. but I think the movement is too fast….. I kept wanting to get a longer look at some of the angles you were holding it at…. 

 

Good luck at the show…..looks like you are bringing some nice  stuff…..
