TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Laminated Steel

Brought to welding heats, steels of different compositions (or iron and steel) can be welded together with pressure. Traditionally this was done by a Japanese bladesmith. The materials are brought to welding heats at the forge, one metal is placed over the other on an anvil and are struck with a hammer to merge them.

  • fux powder on the steel and iron bar
  • A piece of high carbon steel and two smaller pieces of wrought-iron are put on a larger bar of wrought-iron.
    Iron sands and boric acids are used as our forge welding powder, this is one of our secret ingredients!
  • Heated iron on it for forge welding
  • Another of heated wrought iron is put on top of all the pieces.
  • construction of laminated steel
  • The photo at the left shows the high carbon steel being sandwiched between wrought iron. The laminated steel becomes two double bevel blades. Heat and hammer, heat and hammer!

  • laminated steel construction of double bevel
  • The photos above double bevel, below single bevel: The forge weld lines on the knives are clearly visible. It's easy to see the structure of the blade. A thin layer of high carbon steel has been forge welded to a much thicker layer of wrought iron.
  • laminated steel construction of single bevel
  • There are several advantages to this process. For example, the iron backing is tough and dampens vibrations, resharpening is easy, and the blade holds an edge longer than western blades because of hard.

    The structure of laminated steel blades can be compared to that of a pencil. A pencil is composed of a wood and a lead. The wood provides the dampening for the lead. So the pencil can have a hard lead core, but is still tough and durable. Without the wood, it would break easily. Also, the soft wood allows the pencil to be sharpened easily.
