    Spike, Lets just say HARD!!! Eaglewood said it took some trial and time to figure out how and what blade would cut this stuff!! Basically he said its 1 blade per slice.. That was after tearing up a few blades figuring out the proper blade to use, and speed and feed rate etc.

    Maybe he will add t this if I miss understood or posted it wrong.

    Diamond blade. Nope
    Carbide impregnated blade. Nope
    Water jet. Nope
    Back to bimetal blades and so far its one blade per slice.

    Have spent over $300 in blades so far and only have 2 slices.

    Got a friend working on it with an industrial bandsaw that cuts thru large stock. We willfind out next week how it went.
    Saving all the shavings as well.

    Let me know if anyone else wants a slice or shavings. Im all about trades.

    Yep, Its not machine friendly. But I am still excited to have the opportunity to work with this material.

    Eaglewood, thanks for the input and I sure hope the new slices work out for ya!! I would also love to get some of the shavings at some point to add to a can of mosaic damascus!!

    I find it interesting how similar the meteorite is to a burl.
