I want to see your Hamon

I'm not opposed to stock removal. Sometimes it makes a lot more sense than forging anyway. I was wondering about a San-Mai application between two pieces of PW.

It would be ideal. I have a straight razor underway that's wrought/26c3 San Mai. There is a much higher risk of failure with wrought/mild steel than another carbon steel. 

 

I'd like to try 26c3 sandwiched between 15n20 someday.

Hello, this is an experimental blade made of medium carbon steel (I can’t say the exact grade of steel, we are conducting chemical analyzes)
In my experience, such large grains (nie, nioi) can only be obtained on medium carbon steel, on steels with a carbon content of 0.7-1.2 this is not even close (dozens of experiments were carried out)
