Last week, I didn't manage to finish a project for Thursday. To of make up for that, I finished off two pizza cutters today. Details and pics behind the cut.|
The damascus wheel, l6 & O1, has no hamon, which wasn't unexpected; the w2 wheel has a hamon, but no pattern welding. I decided on a simple teardrop handle, Ebony for the W2 wheel, zebrawood for the L6/O1.
Both wheels could use a bit more polish, the bearings (sintered bronze) are a bit tight, but should wear in, and one of the axels is off enough I might just replace it, but on the whole I think I can call these two complete.
I'm exhausted; I put in some 12 hours today on these, trying to get something to show off for tomorrow's hammer-in, but I'm glad I got these done.
Oh, here's some pics:
Now, to bed.
