Thought I would share pictures of this weeks Orishigane runs. Each puck is in the 1.2-1.5% Carbon range. All made from wrought.

Awesome! Do you have pictures of your furnace?

That top pretty puck with the colors was turned into a bar for a friend. Wasn't cracky at all, just needs some of the charcoal bits to diffuse into the steel. A little piece broke off in the second pic revealing the steel grain.



Then changed a few parameters of my furnace to push it further to cast, but not quite. Made these closest possible carbon content before it is so high that it is cast and cannot be worked. I would say this next bit is easily 1.5 C. Squished it down (good sign), and then quenched it. It shattered like glass when struck. The grain is so-so and deserves some folding to be truly beautiful.



Spark is dense and intense, but also long. Unlike cast which is dense and short.
