Small Jelly Roll

I first made a 19 layered 15n20 / 1084 billet about 1 1/2 x 1/2 inches by 20 inches long.

I then rolled it up just like a "jelly roll" here's a pic of me fluxing it.

I folded the billet 3 times and twisted it.

After twisting and welding it up again I did a quick etch to check pattern.

A rough blade blank with the bevels hammered in.
