Anodized titanium necks + "How it's made" photostory.
« il: 21 Ottobre 2015, 12:40:54 am »
Hi,

I want to share with you my latest knives (anodzized titanium necks) and also a photostory about making them. I hope you will like it.

Piece of titanium grade 5. Size 40x90x2,5 mm:



My goal? Two the same neck knives for testing titanium carbidized edge - so first I had to split it on half:



Designing part - now I had to draw shape which will fit into 20x90 mm rectangle. It's not as easy as it seems...



Cutting with angle grinder and "proffesional" material holder.



Ready. Do not try to cut titanium at home. One cut - one disk. That's why I prefer waterjet....



Gringing sharp edges:



Drawing knife shape.



Marking before drilling.



Drilling:



Connecting together:



Grinding shapes (knives are still connected):



After grinding:



Chisel blade grinding:



Ready for making satin finish, chamfering and jimping:











Anodization, carbidization, signature and finish :)











What do you think?

Thank You! But now, make it in real steel! ;D
Seriously; i really enjoy your works. If possible, i would like to know if you got any intention to make more littel jewels like that, in carbon or inox steels. If yes, i'll contact you privately.

Thanks,

It's not a tutorial - it's just a photostory :)

I'm using electrical anodizer, so to get a different colours you just need to use different voltage and prepare titanium surface in right way.

I can't anodize real steel, but I'm making now short series of this model in AEBL steel with sandblastet + satin finish (and of course with double grind, not chisel type like in titanium).

Speaking about jewelery - I've also made titanium necklace for my fiance :)
