Mokume Gane experts Steve Midgett and James Binnion have created a really cool patterned metal. Here’s a quote from their site:

Designers Steve Midgett and James Binnion are the driving forces behind Extrusion Patterned Metals Corporation. They have teamed up to create a new patterned metal material, which they have dubbed XPM’s. eXtrusion Patterned Metals look similar to Damascus steel and Mokume Gane, but with some very significant improvements. Midgett explains, “XPM’s are created through a patent pending hot extrusion process that allows us to do things that are unheard of when using more traditional techniques. We can now bond virtually any metals together, things like titanium to silver, gold, or platinum, and then work them way beyond the limits of traditional patterned metals.”
