Mokume gane with Argentium


#1

I’m wondering whether anyone has tried bonding Argentium with other
metals, especially gold alloys, in a mokume gane billet (I’m hoping
James Binnion has). If so, has anyone determined the temperature at
which the eutectic point would be reached? I was thinking that,
since the Argentium mills more closely to gold alloys than standard
sterling silver, then perhaps it may suit better for mokume gane
applications.

This is exactly the question I’d like an answer to, but I don’t see
any responses to it. James, did you ever get an answer or figure it
out? Can anyone else answer it or point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
