Billy Merritt's 5 steel 75 layer pattern


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  It's been years since I have posted here.  I am looking for information on Billy Merritt's 5 steel 75 layer damascus pattern.   If anyone here could point me to resources that I may have overlooked it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.  Currently looking at 52100,4340,8670,01,15n20.   You were not kidding about the 52100.  What a royal pain to work with.  I appreciate the response.

I recall him saying he was using O2, but I have had others who worked with Billy as well disagree. It was quite a long time ago and I dont recall the 5th material. They all hardened, and all etched different. Billy was always up to throwing something odd into a billet to see what it would do.
