Thanks Aldo!!!

 

 

 

Don,

Have you used any of this 1084 yet? I would like to know how it behave with a hamon? The Mg seems a bit high at .90 . If it makes a nice hamon I think I will get a couple hundre pounds of it if the shipping dosen't kill me. Where is it coming from? Thanks.

Aldo's 1084 is about as good as it gets for damascus or a very good blade but not so good for an active hamon. The manganese is way too high, you want a simple carbon steel with less than .50 Mn (W2, W1, 1095 are all good). The high manganese in this 1084 will cause it to etch very dark for a really good contrast in damascus and I really like the .89 carbon, that's a bonus. I just welded up a big billet today with this 1084 and 15N20, no problems and looks good so far, will post a photo when I finish it.

 

PS. Aldo is shipping out of New Jersey, cost me around $70 for 200 lbs shipped to Missouri.

Aldo mine looks good, the shop fairies just need to hurry up and finish my shop.

:D

 

Glad to hear it John. Hope you enjoy it. I've heard good things back from a few of the guys who got it. Would love to see some pieces on the Gallery.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.
