Default Re: Barry Lee Hands 24k Gold overlay work in progress

Wow Barry. Always completely amazing. Just when you think its doesn't get better they keep coming.

Regarding the question above, you mentioned the knife is soft. I was just pondering this the other day. Would you cut then harden then inlay?
Gold melts at around 1000 but most heat treatment is above that not to mention expansion contraction problems.
Ive never attempted an inlaid blade so i've never had to worry. Just figured I would ask.?
