  1. So I recently got a good sized bit of damascus, does it act like a monosteel under the hammer? Are there things I should watch out for, such as shearing?

      I typically forge it at a bright orange. Not quite welding temps.

      Be careful once you start getting to very thin cross-sections. As it is a laminate, it will de-laminate very quickly if the metal cools off rapidly whilst being worked. Once you have it below 1/8" thickness anywhere I'd grind from there.
