Hello and good day, this is one be mt first real post.. let me again introduce myself, My name is Randy Haas, HHH Custom knives.. And I am a steel addict! lol
Please bare with me as I learn how to add pohots on this forum. This is also the first time I have tried a WIP.. Work In Progress. So here goes nothin.
Yesterday Jr and I started this damascus billet for a custom Sujihiki if all goes to plan this knife will be a 285mm western style handled knife with mosaic damascus blade.. photos of the design will be posted after the billet is ready to forge.
After the billet is done I will post some photos of a paper pattern and show some of that process too.. I guess Im getting ahead of myself. lets see if I can figure out how to post photos
The blade will be 1095 and 15n20.. and here we have a few photos of the assembly of the billet and the first weld.
I guess I figured this pic thing out.. This is the very first step in the process. and I will continue to add more steps to this post if theres any interest in this.. I dont want to overstep or step on anyones toes hear, just want to have fun and show the process for what I believe will be one of the finest kitchen knives we have made so far! and I figured you guys and gals would like to see the process..
Please post any comment or questions..
