Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I’ve been very intrigued by mokume lately. I’d really like to make some, but don’t know where to start. Does anyone have any sources of information as to how to make it? I’ve seen a few videos on YouTube. A couple of them used quarters. I tried the other day but I couldn’t get the dang things to stay together. I tried wrapping them with wire, but it came undone once it got hot. Does anyone have advice on how to hold a stack of quarters together for this? I’d like to clamp a stack in a vise and then just heat it with a torch, but unfortunately I only have a regular propane torch and a propane leaf burner torch. It would be optimal to use a oxy/acetylene from what I can tell. Perhaps I’m going at this all wrong anyway, by going the quarter route. There’s a gentleman I follow on Facebook who makes some beautiful mokume. I’ve asked him about it, but wasn’t able to get any info. Which I understand, as people are busy and don’t have time to respond to things. No biggie. I wasn’t going to mention his name, but since I’m showing a pic of his work I probably should. His name is Kevin Klein. Does anyone know how to make mokume like this? If so, what kind of equipment would be needed?
