  1. Thank you Greg: no, it's not grappage, but i made one last week, very big one this blade is just damascus. Adlai Stein: There is about 150 layers... Eve it seems to be more layers on a face of the blade ! Yes, it is ebony but i don't know the name in english of the second wood in french, it is some "buis" Bye !

  13. Hello Umbo, Nice to see you here Great knife, i hope i could see it in Sicac next week end
  14. Hello Michael: thank you for the explanations, and now i can say grappage in english It's not really my first smelt, but my first big one. As the blade.. Yes, i am studying design in "Ecole boulle", which is a school where people go to learn wood work usually, but not only... Jacques: see you in gembloux ? Maybe, but a little bit far from paris. I would like to come Bye
  15. Thank you Jacques, and it's not my father who did the photos P.Abrera: A grappage process, is exactely the same process used with ore once the bloom is made. The difference is that you put little pieces of steel, pieces of damascus, pieces of bloom you can't use, etc in the furnace.. So the firing is shorter ( about two hours ) for a result practically similar sometimes. Bye !
