    A few more extras finished up to add to my shop shortly.
    We have 3 Petty in stainless 14c28n. And one I made as a demonstration to a student. It is mild steel clad 01, it was forged hot dog style, by hot cutting a slot and dropping in the core.
    The forging was pretty clean so I managed to etch my small logo on there. The forge finish is buffed up and the bevels are hand rubbed and etched. Nice hazy carbon diffusion line on the weld. Its not really possible to run a proper hardness test on san mai, but hardness is very good. I would say 60 hrc or so.

    Thanks Fellas, it was done in the traditional way, hot cutting a slot into the mild for the core to go in. It was interesting because for san mai the pieces would be ground perfectly clean and flat before assembling the billet. In this technique you rely on the hot flux to dissolve the oxides, then when you make the weld it must be done very carefully so as not to trap any flux. I'm surprised how clean it came out.
