turned this billet into a non traditional tanto,
no delams or cold shuts. san mai is perfectly fused together. it did take a very keen edge when hardened.
i chemically plated the blade with 99.99 cu then quenched fusing a thin coating of copper to the outer layers.
This is my first time useing this type of steel and its great. Company has fast shipping and a great selection to chose from. I highly recommend them.
As always good reliable service backed by good products. I will order again
It looks great and should perform well in the forge. Unfortunately, Covid messed up the shipping time and I was not able to use it for the purpose I purchased it. I’m sure it will be great though. This is not my first purchase with makers.
