    Funny moment at the forge

    It was spur of the moment thing, I wanted a double-edged, single bevel pattern-welded dagger. Big mouthful I did end up hammering out the mild and it straightened a bit but because of the bevels, most of the mild was gone. So not enough to straighten it.

    Funny moment at the forge

    So I did something kinda dumb. I welded a small billet with mild steel one side, high carbon the other. I knew quenching in water would bend it towards the mild and that it is possible?? to straighten by hammering the mild thus stretching it. Comical moment when the blade bent dramatically inside the forge! Of course, its a bi-metal. I tried several things to get it straight after quenching but no. My question is, what could I have done? Is it possible to do this with blades? I know kiridashi and chisels are different, but I wanted the same idea just along the whole blade length. Thanks guys, Adriaan

    Forge-welding damascus tiles

    Once you have tiles cut off the end of a bar of damascus, how do you weld them together? I have tried welding them to a sacrificial plate before forge welding but the joints have never been very good. Any body that can give a few pointers?
