Yep...we know how time making blades works... you start in the morning, and before long, the boss reminds you that it's time to quit. This is not to be chauvinistic as I do dinner as much as not, but when the phone rings at the shop, I know who it is. At least, that's how it is around here. Time flies when you're having fun.  :)

That being said, I think you're off to a good start on your blades and I appreciate your work in posting your results.

Please keep doing so, and include a finished blade for us to see.

Thanks again,

Looks like you got it going your way! I love damascus! Lots of work but definitely worth it when you see that pattern the first time!
