24K Gold

24-karat gold is 100%, as-pure-as-it-gets gold, meaning it is non-alloyed. It is also the most expensive type of gold on the market today. Sourcing pure gold is a taxing endeavour and it is not found in abundant quantities. It is precisely this scarcity that makes 24k gold so precious, valuable, and desired.

 

Mokume Gane (wood grained metal) originated in Japan in the 17th century as a mixed metal laminate with distinctive layered wood grain type patterns creating spectacular decorations for Samurai Swords. The first recorded use of mokume gane was by Denbei Shoami (1651-1728) who lived and worked in Japan. Shoami adapted the principles of forge-welded Damascus steel to create mokume gane. Mokume Gane comes at a price, just like Damascus as it's very time consuming and expensive to make.

 

Forged Carbon fiber (aka Forged Composites) products are made through a process where chopped carbon fibers are put into a compression mold and infused with resin. The process allows for more complex shapes using carbon fiber. The final product has a unique appearance that looks like marbled carbon fiber. 

 

Dr. Paolo Feraboli invented the technology for what would be coined forged carbon aka forged composites by Lamborghini. It was even further developed by Dr. Paolo Feraboli, Callaway and Lamborghini.

 

Callaway came out with the Diablo Octane driver and Lamborghini used the Sesto Elemento to showcase their use of forged carbon. Ever since the release of the concept, Lamborghini has been using forged carbon in more and more of its mainstream vehicles, such as in the Huracán Performante.
