    Default New flames pattern welded damascus pics...

    continued from this thread ...some nice pics of my latest blades etc...



    hmmm ... whats in here? .....
    .

    .

    .

    .
















    looks shiney ... my precious













    these pics aren't the best ... it is hard to capture knives ...
    unless you use a lightbox and quality camera ...
    still I hope you get the general idea...

    as I said in my previous thread ...
    using 1075 and 15n20 stock to produce this pattern welded damascus
    created by many twists and folds ... many hours work















    the guard takes several extra processes to include the textured finish
    it has mokume up front with nickel silver and bronze and fibre spacers
    they lead to the Australian River Red Gum Burl handle








    checkered butt for thumb grip (and looks)...spot the missing check..
    I will re-do it






    this pic doesn't really capture the beautiful flames of the forged to shape blade ...
    but it really looks better when its in your hand as the light collects all the facets of the patterns...

    for those who may wish to know the blade was hand rubbed for most of a day,on a super flat granite slab,
    from 600 grit through to 2500 grit and then crocus paper and final light buff...
    this gives it a real flashing type of effect due to being so mirror like on the bevels.
    So sharp the hairs on my arm jumped off before the edge came near it .. heh heh heh




    Thanks for looking ... comments welcome

    cheers Jason

    as soon as i saw the handle in the 2nd pic voice in my head said Burl! hah. good guess..

    very nice knives again.

    the psyderco looking custom folder is cool.. not a fan of bone. but the mokume looks funky.

    toothpick made me think..
    if you have any extra bits and pieces left over of all that damascus steel you have forged.

    any thoughts of making small "jewlery" out of them.. something like coin sized or look alike pendant would be cool. or maybe heart shaped or something.. or my favorite: arrowhead.

    (i probably will make few pendants of the burl wood i have, as xmas presents to the female friends/family. it has that nice detail even in smaller sized piece)

    First I want to say those are beautiful blades. This is a little off subject, but you seem to have a good enough camera. It appears you are using a direct flash, try putting a tissue over the flash to diffuse it. This will reduce the glare. There are other ways of taking this shot, but this will help. Thanks for letting me put in my 2 cents.

    oal is 16.18mm = 0.636"
    blade length 10.05mm = 0.395"

    this makes it amazingly small

    there are other pics of my other micro knives here on cpf with objects giving scale
    e.g. matchheads etc...

    Those are really nice, Jason! Please forgive me if I continue to claim that the neck knife you made me is the best!

    really like this texture on heavy etched Mokume
    it can be tricky to get a heavy etch without pitting and or loss of detail
    then theres polishing... another story altogether




    this one is on black paracord and has Blue tritium eyes

    thanks for looking

    Awesome detail! What is the dimensions of this piece? Can you photograph it next to something so we can get an idea of the scale?

    Great work!

    sorry I have been busy...
    the trits are 5mm x 1.5mm b@rt trits and the cord is standard paracord
    the bead is about 16mm tall and 14mm across,weighs 10.4 grams
    about as big as a thumbnail I guess
    quite a nice size
    detail is very noticable you can feel the texture easily
    thanks Jason
