Fileworked crown

 

GoS - Fileworked damascus steel crownFileworked damascus steel crown

Fileworking details to create patterns and additional highlights is a technique that is common among the best blade makers. The patterns are very personal and every master knifemaker has their own way of doing it. The first GoS watches made earlu 2008. This month we decided it was time to introduce this knifemaking feature into the GoS watches.

So, we developed a pattern for a new crown that will be first featured in a upcoming new bi-color model, Nordic Seasons - Gold.

GoS watch ambassador - Glenn Strömberg - in GoS workshopGlenn Strömberg visit the GoS workshop

GoS brand ambassador Glenn Strömberg spent an afternoon in the GoS workshop in Linköping. He enjoyed seeing the work involved in the manufacturing of GoS watches and spent a lot of time with the x12-loupe checking the damascus steel bridge finishing.

We also took the opportunity to the status of his Nordic Seasons - Autumn. He had put through the paces in his travelling as a sports commentator, e.g. to 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, but all work that was needed was a strap replacement.

Wildflower damascus steel

Wildflower damascus steel, work in progressWork in progress - wildflower steel

Johan took this photo to document work-in-progress of new GoS wildflower patterned dials and he placed a folding rule next to is just as when he documents his blades. The wildflower pattern is created from one plate of layered damascus steel and this time Johan decided to see what result would be by increasing the number of layers to 192. It takes a master steel maker to first create a steel rod with 192 parallel layers and then apply his "magic" to create the patterns, again without the layers blending. As you can see, the layers are still separate!

One of these dials will make it into the first prototype of a GoS gold/damascus steel bicolor watch.

GoS Watch & Knife set

 

news knife setGoS Watch & Knife set

Johan Gustafsson has now developed a new folder knife that is roughly half the size of his normal knives while still containing his trademark design elements. GoS can therefore now offer a gentleman's folder knife as an optional companion to a GoS watch. The knives are individually made to match the aesthetics of the watch.

 Johan Gustafssons folder knifes are made in a liner-lock design, which means that the titanium liner
holding the blade in place also acts as a lock spring securing it in the open position. This lock is released by applying slight pressure on the spring, normally by use of the thumb.
