Mokume gane, or "wood-eye metal," is a labor intensive an old world Japanese metal smithing technique.
It involves layering different colored metals together then using heat and pressure to cause the metals to fuse together.
Once fused the piece is carved into a topography and flattened to create the beautiful patterns.
Iron Lucky has a fantastic selection of high end forged & folded metals for knife makers & jewelers alike. I highly recommend you check out their fine top shelf supplies. Always promptly shipped w/ no hassle.
BEAUTIFUL...Wish I could afford more. Great stuff!
