  2. There had been a question on my mind recently. It’s more a topic of discussion and opinions rather than a one answer question. There has been a big interest in bladesmithing over the last 2-3 years due to a very popular tv show, Do you think it is a good or bad thing that there are so many people coming into this trade? I’m not sure if this has been discussed before, but I am very curious on what you guys think. I personally think it is a good thing that people are taking more of an interest in these trades, but there are so many people all over the Internet making

  3. Hello: Just finished this one for book IV...what a nightmare this one was...the polish is deadly....cut myself a bunch of times but double edges can get yas.. Still it turned out OK I guess.. Not too bad for a broken down old man.. blade length 13 3/4"...1095 and L6 laminate... This one could really benefit from a pro grade polish.. A bunch of stuff going on in there... Hope the photos work JPH

  5. I can’t tell you all how excited I am about this. I want to thank everyone for all the posts and information I have been able to learn from on this forum. I have been working on my forge welding here and there and in between projects. I finally felt I was ready to give Damascus a try, just a small billet. I did 8 layers and folded it once leaving the 15n20 on the outside. Everything was going great until I tried to twist it. I didn’t clean it well enough before twisting and I should have twisted it tighter. To save what I could of the billet the twist is now in the tang and beginning

  7. Very very nice. Also just made this same milestone recently. It feels so awesome, right?! As another option for low layer billets, what I did was 2 5 layer billets, then forged them together with a single layer between them to make 11 total layers. Then I laddered that. Came out pretty nice

  9. Well I have finished the Seax part of this build. Thank you to all who have supported me along the way with advice, feedback and encouragement and also to all those who have walked this path before and paved the way for those such as me by taking the time to share their own threads, WIP's, tutorials and research. Now onward to the sheath. I will have to order the needed materials online so I will have some time to play around with some tool making whilst I wait. 42cm overall length 22cm Blade 20cm Hilt Blade 6mm at the hilt and 7mm
