work in progress . pattern welded steel for knives

Recommended Posts

That looks fantastic

 

What are the chances that the bimetal will be felt alnong the edge ,ie, any chance of a ridge on the edge, or the metals separating?

 

Never seen a blade like this, are you puting this up on British Blades???

 

i dont think i will put this one on the other forum no mate .

the welds are tested to hell by the forging to shape there should be at this stage no chance of seperation at all. it is now one harmoginouse peice of steel .

there is some seration the cutting edge at this point but will be removed once the final edge is put on .

 

 

other than that its not to bad is it .

im sure it will still be here on saterday rob and the others .

all the best , matt.
