Nicholas G Posted April 25 Share Posted April 25 Hi, I’m trying my hand at making knife and sword hardware out of Shibuichi. Melting the metals together without oxidizing the alloy is fine, but every time I try to pour into the mold, it cools too quickly and clogs the top. I’ve been using steel to make my molds. The first mold was 3”x3”x1/8”. I’ve seen videos of people making it and their molds don’t seem much different. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to preheat the mold? Use a different material?
