Love the WIP!! The amount of work you are putting into just that blade is amazing, and I can't wait to see how it all comes together! Thanks for doing this Devin!
Big trouble etching!
Every once in a while I get my self in trouble etching stainless. It never happens with carbon damascus. Something happens in the heat treating that causes patches of uneven etching. The more I mess with it the worse it gets. The problem is worse when there are several different steels in the mix, like damascus with a core. And it always happens when people are watching.
Look closely near the tip and around the name stamp. I will remake the blade, no problem. It just hurts to have to relearn what I'm doing some times.
I'll regrind this into a line knife.
I'll take it, if you need to get rid of the evidence. won't tell a soul.you don't even need to handle it. I take knife donations from famous makers, you know.
I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
Can't you just put it down to random variation and keep it the way it is? Like when Dave etches the Hiros and sometimes they look crazy
I also take such "scrap", in case you were wondering. No handle required! I'll pay shipping!
Seems such a shame to see a beauty like that get thrown in the junk heap
even there are some small flaws, its didn't hurt this beauty a bit!!
