It's not so much having fun as it is experimenting on shapes that are close to desired shape. It's a good way to recover some of the effort you expended making them and profiting for the knowledge. You can always go back to the notebook to look for a technique, material, etc. that worked or failed on a blade shape, size, etc. you wish to try next. 

That's not saying you can't enjoy testing but the benefits are serious.

I have a bin with the broken pieces from testing like TP says, also damascus billet cutoffs, pieces too small etc...  

 

I plan on trying my hand at canister damascus with all these random scraps and leftovers.. I'm thinking I will soak everythingin vinegar to get any scale off, take to wire wheel, then just give it a shot?
