    Got a lamination you find interesting? Post it here....

    I'll get the ball rolling. This is a section of a Masamoto Sohonten yanagiba restoration project I am crawling through

    Here are a pair of Hiromoto AS gyutos that I did for some friends. I’ve always thought that these knives had some of the wildest lamination lines.

    Here’s another Hiromoto AS that I used a different etchant on:

    The newer Konosuke Fujiyama FT B#2 lamination line is pretty outrageous too. I haven’t done any work on this one; it’s the stock finish from Kono.

    Kanechika/Keiichi stainless clad W#1 doesn’t have the craziest lamination line, but the carbon migration shows nicely and I was able to bring out some cool banding patterns in the cladding:

    One of my watetsu clad AS kiridashi has a pretty cool wavy lamination line that came out great after hitting it with some Jnats

    You got some polishing and photography skills there @pd7077.

    Those Hiromotos do have wild lamination lines!

    Just to clarify; I do not intent for this thread to compete with the patina thread or general knife porn.

    I thought it might be fun to elevate the aesthetic of the lamination line. Images in that theme are encouraged!
