I Forge Iron

Damascus bowie... sorta...

Recommended Posts

Well, after spending a year staring at a billet of pool and eye damascus we made during several months of the open forge sessions I host, I finally decided to pull the blade from the billet. I think it turned out pretty nice all in all. Bolster could have been soldered better, but that was mostly due to a lack of the materials I learned with. Anyway, material is 15n20 and 1087 with a layer count of 135. Bolster is brass and the handle is Bocote. I am still layering on Boiled Linseed Oil and will top that off with Minwax.
