Greetings, Just read an article that said… the Mokume Gane stack
had a plate of shibuichi on the top/outside surface. A pattern was
punched down into the shibuichi several layers deep. The top layers
were filed off to show the rings around the pattern. The Mokume
Gane was then upset from the rear, the points files off and the
material leveled in the roller. The result is a very definite pattern
in shibuichi amongst the swirling Mokume Gane pattern. Beautiful.
I am having difficulty seeing this process in my mind and when I draw
out a cross section. Can’t imagine filing off several layers on a
four inch disk but…
Can any one shed some light on this?
