On the bench: first san mai blade

Forged by Ariovaldo Lopes by my request and following Gustavo Vilar´s instructions, this san mai (three layer) bade composed by a core of 01 surreounded y stainless 304 walls had everything to be perfect but things don´t aways work as we want, right? Unfortunatelly, I noticed too late the crack n the material, afetr almost grinding it to its final shape, when I tried to strainghten it on the vise – just a little hand pressure and it snapped. No problem, we learned a lot about making these blades and the next one will work 🙂
