Good idea with the PPE.
2x72 belt grinder with 36 or 60 grit belt tends to shorten your fingers

Most dangerous piece of equipment in the shop is buffing wheel. Be very careful.

Here's my first attempt at twist Damascus. I should have twisted it more to get a tighter pattern, but I quite like the result. This knife is smaller than it looks. Sort of trout/bird knife hybrid.
Beautiful knife.

Once I am confident that I can make a half decent knife, I will try my hand at Damascus.
First attemt did not go down well.
Doing it by hand takes time. Even my blisters had blisters

That Damascus knife is just awesome. Suppose I could Google it but how is Damascus steel made?

My wife wanted to get me a Damascus folder for Christmas. Thank goodness I went with as it felt really cheap and made in China feel to it. Put it down and walked away.

Damascus is a generic term. More correct would be pattern welded steel.





Check out @Straatkat . He makes the most amazing damascus.

This is an example of different pattern welded metals.
Blade is stainless damascus and the scales are titanium damascus.

Briv made me do this.   :biggrin:  I had a blade I made from an old saw blade month ago and never finished it.    Today I made the handle and polished it bit..  Maybe ugly but practical as the photo's will show.   :biggrin:

It's damn cold here from all the recent rain, so I made some nice vetkoek and mince, boere style, and tested the onife in the process.   :lol8:

Louis, ek soek al lank daai tipe mes. Actually daars 2 messe wat ek begeer vir die kombuis.

Smaller size Santoku - so 6-7 duim
Medium size paring mes

Gedink om die Wusthofs te koop, maar wonder of ek nie eerder hand made moet gaan nie.  Watse tipe staal werk vir kombuis messe as mens n mes commission?

Hulle stel voor hi carbon stainless om te gebruik vir kombuis messe.

Ek het hier maar 'n ou saaglem gebruik wat ek ook glo hi carbon is maar ek dink nie stainless nie.  Hom maar net skoongemaak en later weer ge-heat treat en dis dit.   

Hoekom vra jy nie vir Ross om vir jou die twee te maak nie, hy het hier genoem dat hy sal kan maak en sy prys is meer as billik en sy messe is puik. 

Hier is paar wat hy vir my gemaak het, die 3 met die hout handles is puik kombuis messe.


EDIT:  Bygese, homemade voel net beter op die hand en jy weet dis tuisgemaak.  Special.......

Kilroy, I've got a cute little paring knife that looks very similar to the one above, only prettier  :biggrin:. Brass bolsters, a flat garlic crusher at the end of the handle and sable antelope horn handle. Steel is Damascus, layered circular saw blade and mower blades. PM me your number, and I'll WhatsApp you pics. Make me a cheeky offer. It's not stainless steel though, so will need special TLC.
