M3: "Space Age Metals" that work with traditional wood working tools have raised the bar for craftspeople of all types.

Crafts people of all types have fallen in love with M3 as a new material to take their craft to the next level a division of MHKogan Corp. is the first company to make these new "Space Age Metals" commercially available on the internet. "Space Age Metals" are the new composite metals that make everything from the new Boeing 787 to the International Space Station possible. This material is made with as much as 95% of the real metal that has been atomized down to a fine powder (on the molecular level) and combined with special chemical binders to form a new composite material called M3 (short for "Macro Molecular Metal").

M3 is mostly used for its astounding structural properties but it is now being recognized for its remarkable beauty as well. The new metal has the same visual characteristics of the source metal with a surface hardness that will allow an unbelievable gem quality finish, yet it will turn on a wood lathe with standard wood turning tools. Sand, file, rasp, carve, drill or Dremel this remarkable dense and stabile material which will hold the finest of details down to a knife's edge.

One of the many unique characteristics of M3 is that it is electronically depleted and will not cause electrolysis within its own structure. This means that new combinations of metals, even those combining dissimilar metals are now possible. Beautiful "Mokume Gane", "Damascus Steel" and exotic pattern metals of unlimited combinations are not only possible, but financially viable as the M3 process is much more cost effective than traditional "Mokume" methods.

Wood workers are now producing items in Copper, Brass, Bronze, Nickel Silver and Stainless Steel. Pen turners are making extraordinary writing instruments out of "M3 Mokume Gane", "M3 Damascus Steel" and "M3 Black Gold" pattern metals.

"Crafts people of all types have fallen in love with M3 as a new material to take their craft to the next level," says Michael Kogan, spokesperson for "Pipe makers, wood turners, knife makers, walking stick makers, jewelry designers, puzzle makers and of course pen turners are all producing magnificent work with this remarkable new material," Kogan goes on to comment.
