With every new knife comes new challenges. I don't see this slowing down in 2017. I need to up my mokume gane game. I bought some proper brass and copper sheets and cut them up into 38mmx38mm squares. I stacked them 23 layers high and began the heat.


I clamped everything between two large pieces of D2.


Everything worked out and the billet is welded. I can proceed with more heats and flattening out the billet.


old clampy got a bit too much heat.

why wait when those heats can come now.






I put the finished mokume back in the forge and closed the door to let it all cool off slowly. I would call this a success. Total work time was 2 hours from cutting out squares to tempering in the forge.
