More experimenting with low layer pattern welding


Recommended Posts

This time I did 18 layers (the original stack was 9). Interesting to see how the raindrop pattern dissolves into something more abstract in these lower layer knives. I’m very aware of losing some of the outer layers while hammering (oxidizing loss) and grinding/sanding. Lacewood scales.

Interestingly, another fish face appeared on one of the sides out at the tip....second time this has happened!

Perfect. One thing I learned on this project is that the finer grit grinding can lead to small delaminations if you aren't careful. These small flaws were easy to remove with slower/cooler grinding but it did make me take notice about being more careful in the future.
