Very cool you guys! Well done! Can't wait to see the pattern! Junior, your a beast dude!
That kid is a steel smashing BEAST!
Cant wait to see what the pattern on this combination looks like.
So far I am planning on doing a couple of Wa handle petty knives and a HHH folder from this bar.
Damn.... just by watch the WIP pics. I want the knife already can't wait to see the pattern!!

cclin, Thanks man.. That could be worked out! From the bar the a piece was cut and will be used for a commissioned folder.
The 2 remaining pieces are perfect to be Wa handle petty knives! and is what I was planning for them. Lets talk..
The steel has a SUPER ultra fine grain! I expect the visible pattern to be nice once the steel is heat treated and ground into a blade.
very very cool....seems like it would be a beautiful sword
Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
It could of been a great sword! But I had a order for a folder. and the first million layer billet just wasn't big enough to made both the gyuto and the folder.
We cut the middle our for the folder and the two ends I had hoped to make some Wa handle petty's possibly doing differential heat treat so there would be a nice hamon as well as the fine million layer twist pattern.
Im thinking that no matter what I make with this stuff its gona be very cool!
On a side note. I will be starting the million layer suji very soon and will be adding some images to the original WIP post very soon!
Wow!! Let those younger arms do all of that twisting, right? LOL
