Each individual bar of Mokume starts out as 45 to 89 individual layers of copper, brass, or nickel silver – really any combination, the individual pieces are meticulously cleaned and then fused under heat and pressure. Each billet is approximately 2′ x 6″ long. Depending on the pattern we want to achieve, depends on how to proceed if a twisted pattern is desired, the bar would be drawn out into an octagon and then twisted and then forged into the desired shape oversized to be machine to eliminate any surface delamination. And the pattern runs completely through the bar, whereas a random pattern would just be forged down to desired thickness.
