Sample text

The inspiration for new damascus patterns is everywhere; you just have to be open to unexpected influences. ” This applies appropriately to the creation of damascus. Once the maker becomes aware and can recognize the order, creating new patterns becomes a matter of imagination, and the possibilities are endless. Forge welding damascus can be complicated and there are many factors with potential to make a good weld an impossibility. I once conducted a damascus-making demonstration in Canada and could not achieve a good initial weld on my billet.

RADIALS AND JELLYROLLS The layer counts are only a starting point and you may find that you prefer more or less. In specialized damascus patterns, such as radials or jellyrolls, far fewer layers are needed. It is also possible to forge weld sections of high- and low-layer bars into one billet and get a high contrast through patterning. Patterning of the flat laminated billet can be accomplished in many ways. Random pattern needs little explanation. The layers remain relatively flat and some distortion usually occurs during the forging.

The male part can be placed in a square tube with one end capped, filled with a contrasting powdered steel and forge welded. This yields two bars with the same figure for half the cost of the EDM work. A second method for making figures or pictures in steel is to cut plate material and stack the plates. The plates can be cut by laser or water jet less expensively than with an EDM. The plates are stacked in a square tube, and the cut-out figure is filled with contrasting powdered steel, and forge welded.
