    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 weldClick image for larger version.

    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

    I don't usually participate in these as I am always late to the party, but I'll guess. 545 layers, thanks Will!
