I Forge Iron

The Start


This is how all of my Damascus starts out. I stack 7 layers of 1095 and 203-E together and hammer weld it together. This is a critical weld because you're welding 7 pieces of dissimilar steel together. After this weld all welding is fusing the same steel together and welding only 4 pieces instead of 7. I draw the bar out, grind the scale off and cut it into 4 pieces. These are restacked and go back into the forge for the second weld. I do this until I reach 448 layers for large blades and 336 layers for small blades.
