Since it's exactly the same process, I didn't see the point in taking new pics of this step. Only difference is that for this spoon, the cannister is 8" long -twice as the one pictured. Cannister is 40x40mm and the thickness is 2mm.

After making the canister, I put some kitchen paper soaked in WD40 inside. This will burn and consume the O2 inside the can, creating the reduced atmosphere needed for the welding of stainless steels.

Can filled with alternated sheets of 304 (0.3mm) and 420 MV -420 with added Molibdenum Vanadium- (0.7mm)

Then I gotta weld it closed so no extra O2 gets inside.

From now on, pictures are of the actual spoon making process.

Oven at welding temperature, ready to receive the canned steels.

Welding temperature.

After I flaten it with the press, I get rid of the cannister by grinding it off.

Oven at forging temperature.

All your work is eye candy. Thanks for sharing. Very cool.

Outstanding work. Ariel, You are a gifted artist who obviously has worked very hard to get the results that you do. I am continually amazed at the caliber of people who work and use this site in general.

Very well done, Sir.
