Hi guys

I just wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Michael Stein and i am from Denmark, i have been making stock removal knives for a couple of years.

But lately i have been bit by the forge bug.... real baaaaad. :D

At this time i am using most my spare time, learning to forge pattern welded blades.

My biggest love is Japanese weaponry, and i hope that one day i can get as much skill as is needed to these blades.

 

The attached pictures is of a scramaseax i made for one of my friends.

He is a viking reenactor.

The runes read: Forged to Morten on a good day in may.

It is the first useable damascus blade i have made.

Welcome Michael, nice sexy seax:D.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Welcome to the forum Michael! Beautiful seax. I do not know if I would call myself a beginner and post pictures of damascus, might give the rest of us a complex or something! Out of curiosity, how did you do the runes on the back of the blade? Also what materials did you use in your damascus, and how about the handle?

Thanks for the kind words guys. :D

Actually i am quite new to this, this is only the 3rd blade i have forged. And my second go at damascus.

Its not perfect in any way, there is a couple of lamination errors in it. <_<

The runes i did with a dremel tool and a very worn cutting disc.

The damascus i made of 20c carbon steel and 15n20.

The handle is reindeer antler and brass.
