    Nice one. Congrats! Can't wait to see it finished.
    What steel did you use for damask?

    Cool, how did you layer them? You hammer by hand, power hammer, or press? Interested in your process...

    I make my own using old fashioned arm power.I purchased this particular piece as a billet due to some time constraints.Here is a picture of a similar blend stacked forged out into a long square bar twisted then hammered flat.Name:  IMAG0043.jpg

    I know how fun forging can be, but there is also a short cut to get close to where you are now:

    I had no idea that you could purchase unground blanks.That would be a time saver.

    Still fun to beat steel into submission, especially if you have had a bad day at work!
