Hello all, It must be time I held a comp for you wonderful crazies:D

And what better time than over xmas for a brain teaser, work some of that food off with out having to get out of your chair:laugh:

Its not a really fancy one i'm afraid, but its a nice little knife in 14c28n. This one..
12322

As I remember a 150mm fairly deep Petty.

So.. the fun Christmas question...

How many total final layers in this feather pattern...

Here is a slice off the end after the initial weld, forged out, cut to 4 and the 2nd weld12323
the billet start was actaully 3 fat layers of 01 next to each other on the edge then alternating layers of 01/15n20 for a 17 layer start in total....

This is a finished blade from the billet.

A few more examples in my Gallery.

Closest educated.... or wild guess wins.

I'll run the comp to New years day, I will announce the winner a few days after, when I have found my way home:O

Answers on a postcard...or better still in the thread. Love and Happy festive seasons to you all:)

Better go and work it out myself now:lol2:

so I did my math wrong, I mean totally wrong. I got 129746337890625 layers. But first I got 180.

180 seems to low, but the other number seems way to high so I will go with 180

This would go perfectly with the gyuto I have on order! Thanks for the generous opportunity, whoever gets that awesome petty will really start their new year off with a bang!

My guess:
17 layers; billet cut into 4 per restack; 3 restacks (guess); 4th and final restack is only split in 2 = 2,176 layers

Merry Christmas and happy new year!

Thank you all for taking part, and a happy new year to you. The final amount of layers is 11,424
That is 17 layers, cut to 6 then 4 then 4 then a final stack of 7, before the billet is cut in half and welded back together again.
I have looked through a couple of times....Customfan is closest with 10,000:biggrin:
Well done you! pm me your address and I will send it off.
