    San Mai ~ Project

    I KNOW FOR MOST WTF IS THAT, WELL THATS THE SAN MIA BILLET NOT VERY PRETTY HUH?? WELL JUST IMAGINE WHAT I GO THREW ON EACH KNIFE,



    PROFILING NO PATTERN DRAWN,THIS IS HOW U GET ONE OF PEICES




    STARTING MY GRIND



    IM ROUGH GROUND NOW DABBED ACID ON THE BLADE TO FIND MY PATTREN OF 203E ON THE BLADE





    NOW IM READY TO PUT THE BLADE IN THE FORGE TO BRING IT UP TO PROPER TEMP TO TAKE A QUICK BATH IN MY QUENCH OIL TO HARDEN IT,IMAGINE HOW FUN THIS WAS HOLDING IT WITH ONE HAND AN TAKING PICS WITH THE OTHER???





    STRAIGHT OUT OF THE FORGE INTO THE QUENCH TANK





    NOW I PERSONALLY REGRIND MY BLADE UP TO 1000 GRIT BEFORE I PUT IT IN THE TEMPER OVEN TO SEE IF I HAVE ANY CRACKS OR DEFECT FROM THE QUENCH CYCLE,AND SAVES ME THE TROUBLE OF HAVING BAKED ON OIL I HAVE TO CLEAN AFTER THE TEMPER
    BLING!!



    NOW INTO THE OVEN WE GO FOR 2 CYCLES OF TEMPERING AT 400 DEGREES FOR 1HR EACH I LIKE A STRAW TO GOLD LOOK ON MY BLADES MAKES THEM RIGHT!




    WERE OUT OF THE OVEN AFTER AIR COOLING



    NOW I GIVE THE BLADE A GOOD HARD BUFF AND CLEAN IT UP WITH GLASS CLEANER AND HEAD FOR AN ACID BATH FOR A CPL MINS






    NOW I HAND RUB THE BLADE UNDER WATER TO REMOVE THE EXCESS ACID THE GIVE IT A SOFT BUFF WITH WAX TO SHOW ITS PATTERN



    NOW WERE READY FOR SCALES WILSON WANTED SOME DYED MAPLE BURL SO THATS WHAT HE GOT IM GLUED UP ON ONE SIDE AND READY TO DRILL HOLES AND APPLY THE OTHER SIDE








    NOW I START PROFILING THE SCALES WITH A 60 GRIT BELT,THEN I START HAND SANDING FROM 120 TO 1500 GRIT THEN PUT THE SPIT SHINE ON!!
    2 DIFFRENT BUFFS THEN A WAX COAT,PICS DO IT KNOW JUSTICE GUYS






    FINNISHED PRODUCT










    A Patina Process~

    THE PATINA FINNISH I DO ON THE FLATS AN SWEDGE ON MY BLADES,TO GET A FULL PATINA ON THE INTIRE BLADE YOU BLUE THE WHOLE BLADE AND JUST SHARPIN THE CUTTING EDGE

    CLEAN YOUR BLADE UP,AND GET RID OF ANY RESIDUE IT HAS ON IT YOU CAN CLEAN IT WITH WINDEX ECT,THEN TAKE A TOWEL FOLD IT UP AND DIP IT IN BLUING AND BEGIN DABBING ON THE PLACES YOU WANT THE PATINA FINNISHI LET MINE SET FOR 5 MINS OR SO,THEN I TAKE A TOWEL AND WATER AND RUB THE BLADE LIGHTLY TO REMOVE THE BUILD UP AND EXCESS BLUING,REPEAT TILL YOU GET YOUR DARKNESS YOU WANT,THEN I USE CARNUBA WAX ON A LOOSE BUFF AND WAX THE PATINA AREA,I APPLY HANDLES SAND AND EVEN FINNISH THE KNIFE,THEN I GO TO MY GRINDER AND REGRIND THE BLADE TO WERE I WANT THE PATINA TO SHOW,EVERYONE HAS THERE OWN WAYS THIS IS HOW I DO IT,ITS BETTER TO USE LIQUID BLUING RATHER THAN PASTE IN MY OWN OPINION,MANY SIFFRENT WAYS YOU CAN DO THIS U JUST NEED BLUING AN A IMAGINATION.
