Hi,

Just finished 3 blades:

2 hunters and a chef. The hunters are the same size at 8 5/8" oal, blade 4 1/4", ht at heel 1 7/16". The damascus is 5/32" at the spine and the 5160 is 3/16".

The damascus chef is 11 1/4" oal and the blade is 6 1/4" Ht at the heel is 1 3/8" and the thickness of the spine at the heal is 1/16". The chef and hunter damascus blades are 1095/L6.

Thanks for taking a look!

Tantrum86,
I set the initial weld on the anvil, reflux, then go to the power hammer to draw out. The only time I use the press is to weld the feather, then it's back to the hamme to draw it out. I can't seem to 'feel' the steel quite as well with the press. Maybe if I used it more...
