Mokume is very easy to work with. Even if you don’t like your surface finish, it’s simple to start over without ruining your finished product. We recommend using a 400-600 grit grind belt for a final finish, though you can choose to go higher. For a mirror-shiny finish, use a soft buffing compound after grinding. […]
Mokume-Gane, which translates to wood-grained metal, does not contain any iron. Due to its difficulty, this ancient art was nearly lost in the twentieth century, but was revived in the 1970s by Eugene Michael Pijanowski and Hiroko Sato Pajinowski. Today, consumers and connoisseurs can find jewelry, flatware, and other pieces made from Mokume-Gane.
We use different types of steel for each Damascus pattern. Our stainless Damascus is made of either AEB-L and 302 or 440 C and CPM 154. In our carbon Damascus, we use either 0-1 and nickel, 1075 and nickel, or 3V and nickel. For non-ferrous Mokume-Gane, we use a blend of copper, nickel-silver, and brass.
Yes! We forge Damascus blocks that can be used for all types of firearms and gun components, including AR-15 lowers. We don’t offer firearm components in our online store, so please call for more information.
