Damascus
« on: April 30, 2022, 07:27:10 pm »
Is it totally out of my ability to make a pattern welded knife? I can forge weld pretty successfully but I havenít done many big or complicated welds. What would I need to do to work towered being able to make a pattern welded knife?
Why must we make simple things so complicated?

I made a chef's with only seven layers it had a really nice pattern. If you can forge weld give it a try. If you want send me a PM I'll text you a picture of the knife.

I've never tried cable but it's on my list to try. I've used 1095 and 15N20. The picture of the knife I texted you last night was 1084 and 15N20.
