I've been having a lot of fun with this material, it's great for forging all sortsa wacky integrals and then not have to spend hours getting the scales to fit. My favorite comment yet is that the material looks like someone vomited back up osso bucco and noodles on the handle... I'm still giggling
Just finished up this puppy. I had a lot of fun forging this blade; W2 high carbon steel blade with integral guard. Handle is my own cast Impregg handle material (sanitized crushed egg shell, mica powder, and G-Flex epoxy) and ebony. The Impregg material is translucent in the thinner areas around the guard. The hamon came out almost exactly as intended - a little closer to the edge in spots but still very serviceable. Comments and critique encouraged! Theo
So I am experimenting with this new handle material I made up that I call Impregg. It's sanitized and crushed egg shell, mica powder, and G-Flex epoxy. It's got some really neat depth to it, you can see through the gaps between shells to the swirls of mica powder inside. The tang is left rough and the material is "cast" directly onto it. I feel it will work really well for my integrals especially.Please let me know what you think, I plan on using it in a little upcoming series.Hand forged S7 high carbon steel camp knife with integral guard.
