Nuts, bolts, and gears canister damascus coffin handle bowie

Recommended Posts

Carbon steel nuts, bolts, and chopped up gear stock welded in a canister with 1095 and nickle powder, forge-welded-on random pattern 1080 and 1095 cutting edge. Hidden tang ebony handle with 3D printed cast bronze guard and medallions. The Nazz logo is hidden in the medallions.

I've been having a lot of fun with canister damascus recently; I think I'll try to perfect this pattern a bit more, I really like where it's going... not quite there yet though, I want to find smaller carbon steel gearstock, nuts, and bolts. Could have welded on the edge a bit more cleanly - next time I think I'll go with a twisted edge, feels more appropriate for the theme.

Awesome blade Theo.  Is this the one you started with a video on YouTube?

Theo, that's one cool looking blade! I can see a lot of awesome potential in patterns with this style. Keep at it.

Cannister lets you use a lot of weird stuff *and* to place it carefully if you want to.  Using a "good" steel for the edge lets you play around a lot more with the sides...

That's got to be one of the cooler patterns I've seen in a while Leo. Sort of what a wizard would pull out of his junk drawer in a pinch sort of blade. Maybe a blade a transformer would smoosh an opponent into. It brings a lot of stories to mind, I like it.

Delightful, Theo. Reminds me of a polished slab of fossil snail conglomerate. Makes me visualize some snail-like wood screw damascus.

Kudos to your photographer - really showcases your attention to theme and detail.

Hey Theo,

This beaut came up on my Instagram with know reference to you, I hope you don't mind that I gave you a shout out and directed people to your YouTube. There were a lot of amazed people though, I told them if they thought it looked cool, they should wait and see how you made it! Still one of the coolest canister damascus designs I've seen!
