I want to see your Hamon

Recommended Posts

Good lookin stuff Monty!!!

 

Here's a shot that I may have shown here a while back but thought it would add to this thread. W1 kitchen knife blades.

Wow Don. I am planning on making a few chef's knifes in the near future for Christmas presents. I would be way-happy with half the hamon your blades display. Great inspiration.

I realize there is a huge set of scratches down the blade; but I'm learning important lessons about fit and finish and one of those is TAPE up your blade among other things.

This Hamon was accomplished with refractory cement and fire scale mixed together and applied.

then I heated and air cooled 3 times and then I quneched.

Funny enough in the fourth heat the cement fell off the other side but left and even more interesting Hamon.

Any comments or feedback is welcome.

Thanks,

JJ

Hamon eh? well lets see, let me peruse my photo inventory and pull something out.

 

This one is a saka choji close up from a wakazashi I made.

 

Here is the same style hamon (saka choji) on a katana I made.

Rick I have been waiting for you to post in here as you have some of the most amazing hammons that myself and everyone else has ever seen. Your designs are subtle to the wild range. And your hammons like Walter and Don's speak volumes to us who are but merely learning.

 

 

Once again I am so very glad you posted in here.

I am impressed with the overall designs, and the blades are sweet. Please keep them coming. This last set of blades were very attractive and it seems some are very in depth.
