Mark has been sending me some extra chunks of wood for my personal stash.
I get to make him a crazy knife.
This may take a while as what with everything else it will be an hour here, hour there. Plus it will be a bit of an experiment for me trying some new ideas.
Its all pretty make it up as you go along, but this is what we have so far, 3 twisted bars, 2 clockwise twist, one anti-clockwise. One is a 40 layer of en42 and 15n20 with 3 strips of nickel in there too That will likely be on the spine. The other 2 bars are 5 bold layers of 01 and 15n20 with pure nickel accents so will be super contrasty.
I cut them down into chunks to mull over some ideas of construction. I think I will make an explosion pattern to reveal on the edge and some of these bars will be split and welded inside out so the star part of the twist shows on the spine, then reveals on the ground bevel bits.
I will clean these bits to reveal the pattern so I can continue to think and add bits to make up a composite pattern.
Anyway here is what we have so far
