Hello all!

 

The winter was loooong and snowy, but I finally came out of my cave!

Teaser pictures of recent knives I've done:

The highest layer count damascus I've made; 900 layers. The ghost pattern was a surprise...

I have more on the way, I'm having pictures problem :angry:

 

More details and pictures on my blog!!

Thank you Chris :)

 

It's a san mai, but there is a faint hamon...

That ghost pattern appears on high layer damascus when you give heavy deformations during forging.

On this blade it was not made on purpose, it just appeared when the blade was etched, a very pleasant surprise!

After my last weld on the billet, I placed the billet on the side; layers "standing up" on the anvil, drawn out, then assembled for the san mai.

 

It's W1 and band saw blade, the big ones in saw mills supposed to be 15N20.

That's really wild. Looks like a curtain! The damascus part makes a really cool contrast to the bit (or whatever you want to call the edge steel).
