I'm sorry to say that my work is cut out for me. Also,,,, I'm losing a lot of material in the forge. By the time I get to where I want to be I might not be able to make a letter opener. I'm thinking I might have to make another billet. Time will tell. Wish I had a press!!!That is so awesome! I really like those patterns A LOT. It is extremely interesting to see the patterns unfold hehe pun intended. Beautiful
The one I just posted was polished to 600 grit then etched and then put into a coffee solution, then polished with carnuba wax.(what's going on in your shop thread)I’m just curious, but what happens when a piece of Damascus is mirror shined then etched. I know I’m showing my ignorance here lol.
Just make your next batch of Demascus like my Italian Grandmother made Tomato sauce. "If you have 5 people coming to Dnner make enough for at least 10!!Maybe,,,,
I've lost more then I would like too. I would have to make another billet if I wanted to make a Bowie.
