before i add pictures of amazing shanghai skyline, rooftops and skyscrapers, i wanted to show everyone this must-see place. it’s a famous classical garden located in the old street which is just walking distance from the busiest area of the city ☺️
...Test a Viking Seax before etch. This has been a long time project. .......I will show the finished blade tomorrow........
The approx 12 inch blade is 4 bars of large twist....Until the time to put the edge on...it was all done by hand as they would have done it official. I welded it with a 4 pound hammer and free it out with a 8 pound hammer. Then welded the bars together with a 4 pound. It was draw folded down clean and hand sanded to the point of heat treating. .....this has been a long time getting it to this point. As I get older it was harder and harder to get this done but he and I both thought it best. ....Tomorrow the results of the etch....#byhand
