Ladder Damascus and Curly Maple Drop-Point


Recommended Posts

       The blade is 100 layer 1095/15n20 ladder damascus, the bolsters brass, and the handle un-dyed curly maple. Because I made the unwise decision to learn how to make pattern welded steel at the same time as basic knife making this is my first successful pattern welded blade as well as my second full tang knife, and the first with bolsters. Comments and critiques are appreciated.

Looks good for a first PW. We have a bit in common. My first 2 finished knives (my only finished ones so far) were pattern welded billets. I wasn't intending to make knives at all but was fascinated with the PW process. My attempts turned out so well (IMHO), it just seemed appropriate to make them into knives. :)
