I met up with Todd Robbins at my dads house and Todd taught us how to forge cable damascus. We all had a great time and I want to thank Todd for his time and sharing his knowledge. Attached is a pic of myself forging and a pic of a Barlow made with my 1st bar. Thanks again Todd2thumbs

I had a great time forging with Ralph and his dad! I'm kind of a slacker, though. I've cleaned up the profile and ground in the bevels on two small fixed blades I forged that day and ground all of the forge scale off of a bigger bar, but nothing is close to finished. I'm looking forward to seeing this Barlow in person. Ralph's fit and finish is impeccable, and his steel looks good, too!

Very nice!! The damascus and the knife look great.
Did you Twist the Cable much tighter. I have tried this once. We twisted the Cable tight and used a press2thumbs

Thanks for the comments, yes we twisted it tight but no press just a hammer.

Great job there Ralph. I really like that pattern. How many layers did you end up with?

Outstanding Work. Always been a fan of both Damascus and Stag, and when you put them together, you get an unbeatable combination.
