    Thanks Pierre this one was made up out of a multi bar of W's then stacked a few times. Its come out a bit like explosion pattern.
    Layer count, something around the 6,000 mark.

    I like it too. Will the pattern show more as you forge it out?

    Good I'm glad you like it. The pattern is all showing and decompressed as it is. I'll forge it out just a tad more. Should soften it a bit and make it easier to take it all in. I think it will make a rather funky Suji.

    Ok, a batch ready for Ht. They are a tad oversize to allow for any decarb and later tweaks. Tapers 3/4 ground, I take them to final widths after HT

    Quick etch to check the Pattern on Sean's 240 Gyuto. Some two tone Amboyna on the way for the handle.

    Judd Pattern sneaky peak.




    Its softened nicely. This is a variation of a W's pattern. I'm sure many similar things have been done before. But I think I'll call my version of it Butterflies.
    I gave a portion a buff on the wheel and it will look super yummy polished.

    Dang Will!
    Those are some great looking patterns.
    I really like the squirrel tail one.
    and the one for Judd makes me start hallucinating.

    There coming along really well Will, nice one. The stand out piece for me looks like it's going to be the butterflies suji. If it looks this good now, god knows how stunning it will look when fully handled and polished.
