A sexy little weapon for Sanjay

Hey everyone
Just dropped by to say hi and show off a piece I custom made for Sanjay. I threw in some picture to show the process of making this sweet little folding knife. I am sure you all know, and have come to love Sanjay, your super mod and overall god, but I wanted to say how cool he is and how much I enjoyed working on this piece with him.

Check out other knives at my site
http://www.zoecristknives.com

Well here it is......

Full Damascus Slip Joint Folder
Blade Length 2 5/8"
Handle Length 3 1/2"
1095 / 15n20 Feather Pattern Damascus
1080 / A203E Explosion Pattern

Forging the damascus for the blade]

surface grinding the billet used for the handles

the blade and back spring roughed out and after heat treating

handles roughed out and a little of the billet they came from

all the pieces roughed out and getting close to shape

test fitting and adjusting the action to make sure it has proper tension and that it lands correctly open and closed

getting all cleaned up

grinding the bevels in and setting the nail nick


All done

Do you mean plating like metal plating. If so Damascus is different
I take 2 different types of steel in bars about 1/4" thick I use about 15 of them. Then heat them up until the almost melt and then beat the he'll out of them and the stick together bthdn I fold the bar over and over and stretching out all the time. Depending on how you stretch and fold makes the pattern. Check oh the video on the home page of my site and it shows a little how it's done. Thanks for cool comments. You all rock

i thought "real" damascus was lost, and we can only emulate the look of it these days without the physical characteristics

yes "real" damascus, if it wasn't pattern welding like is currently implemented, is lost but this style is p much the norm when people bring up damascus blades

yeah since modern steel is much stronger than the "true" damascus blades of the medieval time frame i think its pretty silly to argue about whether or not pattern welding to get the same look shouldn't be considered damascus steel
