I would probably say something like wow or nice if I knew what I was looking at.  Besides a puck or crucible steel, what I'm I looking at? It seems interesting.

The puck itself is cool with the rasied denrites, but the etched bar in the first pic shows the pattern that will be in a finished blade.  In this case, a pattern that looks fairly authentic for true wootz.

Looking really good Matt.  I keep watching videos of guys making crucible steel blades.  I think it's going to be on my list in the not too distant future.

Yeah I'm pretty happy with my progress on it though there's been quite a few failures before it. This last blade is looking much closer to the good patterns of the old blades than any of my previous.

I just built a press from a log splitter, removed the ram and built a framework around it. Getting ingots to bars SOOOOO much faster and loosing so much less to forge scale.
