Thread: Laminating with copper?

  1. #11
    for reference, another older knife with copper in between the layers:


    i also saw it in scissors when i was visiting a specialty store in japan... the maker mad passed away and was the last scissor maker doing that kind of lamination by hand

    Very interesting. I've seen copper and iron laminated by solid state diffusion in mokume. Ariel Salaverria has a tutorial on 1070/copper welded at full heat in a can. I hadn't considered it an alternative to Nickel as a carbon barrier. I wonder why the trend moved to nickel as its 10 times the price. Are these examples stainless clad?

    if i hadn't of sold them I was going to have them rehandled, but i really don't use single beveled knives.

    No , the Watanabe is carbon steel, I don't remember exactly what he used to use back in the day when I got these before he became famous and I couldn't afford his work.
