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.
Hi I would like to give canister damascus a go, but I cannot find materials for it. Steel powder where do you get that in europe ? Could I use something else than steel powder ? maybe just tiny cubes of steel or shavings ? Best regards Troels
Carbon steel nuts, bolts, and chopped up gear stock welded in a canister with 1095 and nickle powder, forge-welded-on random pattern 1080 and 1095 cutting edge. Hidden tang ebony handle with 3D printed cast bronze guard and medallions. The Nazz logo is hidden in the medallions. I've been having a lot of fun with canister damascus recently; I think I'll try to perfect this pattern a bit more, I really like where it's going... not quite there yet though, I want to find smaller carbon steel gearstock, nuts, and bolts. Could have welded on the edge a bit more cleanly - next time I think I'll go with a twisted edge, feels more appropriate for the theme.
