Thread: Finished this knife as a thank you gift for a friend

  1. #1

    Cool Finished this knife as a thank you gift for a friend

    My own hand forged Damascus, brass guard, brass mosaic pin, hidden tang with a nicely figured Masur Birch handle:





    I've been playing with low layer count Damascus blades for a while now and I prefer the look to high layer count, and they are simpler to make, which is always nice. I polished the blade this time instead of etching it - you can still see the layering but it's much fainter than you would normally expect on a Damascus knife. The idea is for it to develop and show over time and use - let's see how that works out...

    This one is O1/L6 combined so no soft spots

    It's a long-overdue thank you gift for a friend who helped me with my FAC Rapid. Hope he likes it - if not, I'll be happy to take it back

    Very nice. I'm curious, do you do your low layer damascus with hand hammer or power hammer?
