Very nice work.

Good job on the penny scrolls. Give us a few details on how you forged them.

Also, what did you use to etch the wrought?

Very nice, indeed.

yes I made the damascus and like i said it is fire etch you sand the part to 400 finish put it back in the fire and raise the grain. clean with wire wheel and repeat until you love it wire wheel blue and wax. as for making the scroll I did it the old way with my hammer and tongs and a pice of wrought 5/8 x 5/8 x2-3/4 long

Thank you all. I love making knives and one day it will be all that i do. Grant you don't need to heat treat the hardware just the blade and that I acid etch after I sand it to 500.
