Yes, I got a nice block of deep blue on the way as well.
great looking steel there. Did you make it?
OK, finally got it together, work has not been kind to the old fart! (Well not that old, just older Thanks Jon Bon)
Here you have it, nickle silver/copper mokume, pure nickle and black vulcanized fiber spacers, green tone mammoth tooth
Exhibition desert ironwood burl, and a single mosaic pin. There are other pins, those are hidden.
I hope you like it! Comments welcome.
I saw the curve in the spacers, has me baffled. Will you please stop raising the bar, how will I ever catch up?
I'm speechless. Fantastic, just fantastic.
Actually, I haven't bought one in a while, still have a few sitting here, not really knowing how to deal with them. Two of them fell apart when I looked hard at them, this stuff can be really brittle. How do you work the mammoth tooth? What tools for drilling and cutting?
Oh, and I am not totally clear: What do you mean with the spacer is curved? In which direction? Should I be wearing my glasses?
Of course, the knife looks stunning, beautiful work!
The curve is happening between the spacer components, they are ground at a 3" radius, the black and silver spacers are then bent to match the radius in the other components.
Yes Charles Turnage, sorry, some stuff I got to have
For working it, a thin cut off disk in the angle grinder to cut it, belt grinder to shape and polish it, and diamond burs or carbide bits to drill it. If it cracks CA glue will hold it together, also use CA to fill any voids and seal cracks.
That is what you call kitchen jewelry! Just fantastic, beautiful work. I don't know about that weird bolster with the threaded rod, tho..................
