    The rebuild of marc4pt0's suji-hiki (or how ever it is called).

    My first attempt of this blade ended in ruin. The W2 that I was able to get ahold of was slightly over 1/4 inch thick and obviously had to be forged down. Here are the results afte HT:


    So after many of research, doubt and conversations with those who know but are reluctant to tell, I have taken a piece from the same bar and brought it to forge welding temp. BTW, the first one was forged at 1950 F..

    Here are the results:






    So in a few I will get the rough shape hammered out and the the super rough grind done.
    Tomorrow will be the clay and HT.
    Do not tell me I can't, let me succeed or fail. Even a failure is a small success.

    Like I said, really rough. More to come.

    I really like the shape of the blade, especially the kiritsuke tip

    Thanks all, she is a bit long and a touch tall, but that will come out in the grind. Later today I will forge in the tang and finish out the profile. After that its the rough grind and then the HT. I don't think I will have a problem with delamination this time around. It was forged down at 2175-2000 F this time so any sheer cracks etc wer welded back together.

    No, just a W2 mono that will be differentially HT'd
