  1. Here is a camp chopper knife I made from a 12 layer Damascus billet I made from 4 layers each of 1095, 1084, and 15N20 steels. I just did an edge quench on this. The handle is made from stabilized walnut, with copper pins. Knife is very well balanced, straight, and feels light in the hands. It's kind of like a Kukri, but not quite. It's very sharp and chops great. I chopped up a piece of hard Eucalyptus branch with it and it chopped very well, and didn't loose it's edge at all, and would still slice paper and shave hair afterwards. I left some imperfections in it to give it an older, hand forg
  2. So I'm finishing my first multi bar knife, an integral chef i'm pretty happy with considering it has taken 5 tries to get there (5 forging tries, 3 handles...). I etched it three times in ferric and thought the contrast wasn't to my liking, so decided to try out instant coffee etching. I first tried it out on a former, smaller knife i had, and absolutely loved it, so in went my new knife, as well as all the others I had. Coffee etching rules!! Only one problem: Where before i had a not so contrast-ful but clean pattern, I end up with a good contrast, but lines have appeared on one side of
  3. Help! Newbie possibly in over his head A good co-worker of mine passed on to me a handful of steel rods. I "spark" tested them and was content with the results. I lack welding equipment so I improvised by using rebar tie wire and wrapping it in twisted knots. It's more to hold in place than anything. Tossed newly wrapped wad of 1/4" steel rods in my home made charcoal forge and heated that bad boy up. I tried to simply forge weld the ends but to no avail. Boraxed it to hell and back and re heated. Now to the over my head part.....I through the wad into the vise and started twis
  4. Hi, I'm new to the forum, and to knife making. This is my first post. Thought I would post a pic of the first 3 Damsacus knives I made. These are the 4'th and 5'th knives I have ever made. The two matching knives I made for my parents, and they are made from 1084,1095, and 15N20. They are 64 layers with some raindrop pattern in them. The other knife is 1095, and 15N20, and is only 24 layers. Handles are Cocobolo. The handles on the two matching knives have a partially hidden guard that I came up with as a way to fix a mistake I made. I drilled the forward tang hole too close to the guard and i
  5. So, I have a really large pattern welding contract coming up, and I'm working on the final prototype pieces. This set a new record for me today, so I figured sharing would be as good as excuse as any to return to one of the forums that I've neglected for way too long. I can't say what the end product is yet, but trust me, as soon as I can, I will. Today's work was a billet of 1045/1075/15n20. Just a wee tiny thing, it started at 2"x4-3/4"x10" (about 30lbs). This is to date the largest billet I've ever done, and provided that everything works out, I'll only have to do somewhere betwee
  6. Hey all, I know I haven't been around in a while, but it's been crazy here in Dekerville as the shop has been undergoing MASSIVE changes. Change isn't free though, and so I have a bunch of barstock here available for sale. There will be more coming, and I'm also always up for custom orders if you need something special. My shop capabilities have changed dramatically, and so I can now work much larger stock than before, and am doing surface grinding in house now. Feel free to call on me for large projects as I can handle billets up to ~30lbs now. All of my steel comes to you normalize
  7. Hi !! I had some problems with my computer, so still i have to make and add my bearded photo. But now i will show you my new knife project. Blade is made of 15n20, 1070 damascus and i try to make handle with some stainless damascus parts. Stainless damascus i made of 304 and 416L (? in my country 4h13 or 1.4034).
  8. These were both for my table at NYCKS, the blades are two differnet patternes of mosaic damascus, we got a new shop mate here at Dragons breath forge, Mereko Maumasi he is a bit of a wizard with mosaic and some of his ideas have infected me. The spidy pattern came about after showing him the parent bar and he had an idea and drew out the pattern..looked so cool I went with it. the shooting star pattern was one i came up with, putting together some things I have been playing with along with some of Marekos methods. Totally looking forward to exploring these ideas further. the spidy patter
  9. Hey guys, so I've been forging for several years now and just got set up for forge-welding, I read these forums everyday so I have seen a few posts about what type of steels to use, the problem is I'm not gonna drop a ton of money on steels, I'm mostly a scrap hunter. I want to do a damascus blade, I know normally you go with known metals that will offer a high contrast, I have some leaf spring, some mild steel, a massive industrial saw mill blade, several bandsaw blades and files and some stainless. My hope is that some combo of these metals will create a decently vivid contrast will forge we

  13. Hey all. I was wondering if anyone had a chart or info on how different steels etch, compared to each other. For instance, I know that high-alloy, high-carbon steels, like 52100 and 5160, etch pretty dark, and high chrome steels, lik L6, etch bright. Does anyone have a list, or just a condensed chart on how a lot of steels etch? Thanks.
  14. Hello! Yesterday I started new project - pattern welded pipehawk. It is my second attempt to forge pipehawk. I started with a sketch with dimentions: And then I cut pieces of steel for billet, one were made out of 50HF spring steel and S235 low carbon steel, and second out of 50HF and NCV1, Billets ready for forge welding, the bigger one have 30 layers and 1640 gram of weight, smaller one has 20 layers and 888 grams of weight. Few pictures of forging using power hammer, fluxing and heating up. Billets ready for grinding, cuttin
  15. I have a new design that I am very excited to show you all today! I recently saw a traditional kiridashi from Japan, it had a wood saya and it got me thinking about a new knife design. This knife features a full shirasaya and a necklace. The blade is held firmly within the saya and can be worn around the neck using the necklace. It can then be easily drawn with one hand, and the saya will be left around your neck attached to the necklace. Now here's the really cool part, if you don't want to wear it around your neck, the necklace has clasps that can be opened and allow the necklace p
