    does damascus always do this??

    ok 1 its made of bandsaw blades and pallet strapping and 2 it doesnt have a hole in it because i was trying to sharpen it at the time and tried heating it up to make it easier because it was pretty hard. I thought i annealed it properly but apparently i didnt. anyway i heated it up and then it looked like that and i thought it was pretty cool because i thought only timascus did that. This is what it looks like now.
  3. hey just wondering first of all if damascus steel always tempers differently like this and what u think of the start to my first folder thanks

    Massachusetts appreticeship

    Hello, I have been trying to make blades for about 5 or 6 months now and look to further my skills i live in Winchendon Massachusetts and was hoping to find someone i could be an apprentice to. I am 16 and i can weld also. I am familiar with the basic forging techniques. I am willing and used to working hard and eager to learn more about this fantastic trade. Thanks, Jake Demont

    improvised clay for hardening

    i tried mixing some wood ash from the fire place water and some modeling clay and it worked ok however i didnt allow for it to dry does it work better that way? and does anyone else think that Japaneses bladesmiths make putting on clay in a nice pattern easy ha ha i tried it and it was way harder than i thought it would be anyway thanks jake

    Blown Forge VS. Atmospheric

    with blown u use alot less gas but im pretty sure forge welding is easier with less air beacause it contaminates the weld area so its up to u
