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?

Not at this time.

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.

Thank you Jesvs. It is a constant struggle to produce the greatest possible outcome.
