    I loved your rings!
    Can you print name inside as well?

    Forgive my lack of knowledge.
    Any international standard for size?
    Can it be engraved from a gold smith in Norway?

    There are not international standards for size, however there are american and european standards and if you give me a european standard size I can do the conversion to american. I am comfortable working in mm, most of the jewelry market is moving in that direction.
    You should be able to find a goldsmith locally that does engraving, and they could do it easily.
    Thanks,

    One other thing I forgot to mention, yesterday I got in over 80 lbs of AEB-l for making damascus out of. Now I have plenty to work with for awhile.

    Ok.
    Time for some harsh reality. What I accomplished this week. Fortunately I had an order for some gold/silver mokume, I filled that order. I spent the rest of the week making damascus for kitchen knives. I finished 7 bars, 2 of those were the crazy quilt pattern, which I think will be majorly cool, but I won't know until they are back from grinding. 3 of the bars are of random pattern similar to what I have done already. 2 of the bars are something else entirely, another new idea I wanted to try. These bars will be sent off for blanchard grinding, while I am waiting for them I will be working on other projects. I did get my stainless damascus billet for moribashi fused as well. I also got over 80 lbs of AEB-L in for making more. Ok so thats what I did this week.
    So whats on the board for this week?
    I have 3 bars of damascus already ground and ready to make some knives out of, so thats where I will start. I will also be working more on the moribashi.
    My goal for the week is to finish those 3 knives and also make some moribashi. Once I get those things done I will work on more stainless damascus for some of the other projects.
