Hello all, It must be time I held a comp for you wonderful crazies
And what better time than over xmas for a brain teaser, work some of that food off with out having to get out of your chair
Its not a really fancy one i'm afraid, but its a nice little knife in 14c28n. This one..
As I remember a 150mm fairly deep Petty.
So.. the fun Christmas question...
How many total final layers in this feather pattern...
Here is a slice off the end after the initial weld, forged out, cut to 4 and the 2nd weld
the billet start was actaully 3 fat layers of 01 next to each other on the edge then alternating layers of 01/15n20 for a 17 layer start in total....
This is a finished blade from the billet.
A few more examples in my Gallery.
Closest educated.... or wild guess wins.
I'll run the comp to New years day, I will announce the winner a few days after, when I have found my way home
Answers on a postcard...or better still in the thread. Love and Happy festive seasons to you all
Better go and work it out myself now
