Oh don't worry. I plan to start small. This was just a curiosity I had. Possibly for a project years down the road. I wouldn't even attempt a canister Damascus knife until I'd gotten the hang of making regular knives and picked up some fancier equipment. Thank you!
Aspiring bladesmith here (hopefully I'll get to start learning in the spring). I was wondering and couldn't find anywhere, is it possible to make a canister Damascus billet large enough to forge a sword out of? I figure that someone must have tried it, but maybe it just isn't a good idea. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
