I’m into Mokume Gane aswell. I tried it the hard way, sometimes
with good result and more often with bad ones. Fact is that their is
a critical point that you have to examinate by experience. Little
know how’s, doe’s and dont’s. Be very observative and focused!
A very good advice which I strongly recomment is the purchase of two
Mokume gane by Steve Midgett and a second one from Ian Fergusson both
available by amazon.com or other online stores. These two books made
a hell of a difference to me. The book from Ian Fergusson gives you
more info about Kiln or forge method. I’m sure that other members of
this forum have lot’s of info for you
A visit to James Binion and Steve Midget old and new website can
show the the possibility’s of this art. The knowledge of both people
go’s far behond of what I know about this specific craft.
Take your time to dig in and do some “homework” first which will
safe you from lot’s of errors and trials.
Merry Christmas and a happy Newyear!
