• Letter inlays in a 3 core bar

    This has been on my list of things to try, for ages. I did a few test pieces of single letters and they went well. So I went for something a bit more ambitious.
    I have always wanted to put + MAXEN MEFECIT + into a sword blade. I have a full 3 core sword all welded up, but decided, as this is an experiment, to try this out on some leftover bars from that piece.
    I welded up 3 bars that have an interupted pattern of anticlockwise and clockwise twists. This bar is 30mm wide.
    The pieces for the inlays have been made from 10 layers of steel and forged to about 6mm round. Then twisted and forged into rods about 4mm round. All these rods were then cut to match the impressions that I forged into the 3 core bar and welded in.
    The letters are 20mm tall and the length of the inlaid area is about 11" long.

    Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) Sam

    A devotee of the Para 1, I hopped up and down like the Mad Monk about the Para 2, only to find myself pretty savagely disappointed by it when a first, then an improved second landed on the doormat. I often get wound up into an unreasonanble frenzy of enthusiasm about new Spydercos. I think they...

    Thought i'd say "hi" to some old friends. The real world has been a bit busy the last few years but times are changing. Space for a decent workshop so time to dip the toe back in once set up.
