Cable damascus with perpendicular tang slotted into caribou antler with 3D printed cast bronze medallion. I filled in the gaps of the cable with clear epoxy I mixed gunmetal-blue mica powder into - I always hated how those little gaps were a magnet for all that bad stuff. I made a bunch of these medallions, going to start throwing them on knives I don't want to filework my "N" onto.
I forged my first real cable damascus blade today, with mystery cable, most likely improved plow steel. It is a triple core blade, but I didn't get the defined herringbone pattern I wanted I normalized by bringing it to non-magnetic 3 times and air cooling to ambient temp, then brought to non-magnetic and did a full quench in preheated automatic transmission fluid. The problem is that the edge of the blade didn't harden to my liking. The spine and first .75 inches of the tip are hard, but the rest is fairly easy to cut with a file. Any ideas why this happened and/or how to fix it? Dimensions: 7" OAL Distal: .125 to .0625 over 3.25" thickness of cutting edge: .046 (3/64") Pictures: (not sure what the max is, so I'll go conservative)
Hey there, Just finished a fun project for a friend in Australia. I forged a cable damascus knife made out of reclaimed materials i found and got from other people, a drop point "brut de forge" utility knife, full flat convex edge with stabilized camel bone scales and red copper pins. Hope you like it, take care Igor.
