Reflection to the ancient steel.


Recommended Posts

Really nice pattern Niko!! It is awesome when you get that consistency down and you can choose what pattern you want to make each and every time.  I love that blade shape too, really nice.  I can't wait to see what the finished blade looks like. Keep up the good work!

Hello All, Just saw the comments about NIko here.......I think people are brave over the internet and less so in person. If Niko says he is making this then he is. I never doubted his skills

Marius, you clearly don't know wootz sufficiently to comment. A bar can easily show a very good pattern after filing, light sanding and etching, and one doesn't need to make a blade from steel in orde

Hi Marius i agree with Alan, except my opinion is that Niko makes “ the best “ modern wootz steel.  The patterns are absolutely wonderful !  He has worked very hard, and shared his experiences in

Looks good (to my uneducated eye). Thanks for the forging tip too!

Hello All,

Just saw the comments about NIko here.......I think people are brave over the internet and less so in person.

If Niko says he is making this then he is. I never doubted his skills nor determination and the photos do not speak for themselves, but rather scream.

That steel looks great to me.
