Damascus blade, ready for a handle.

If I remember correctly, this damascus is the 3rd or maybe 4th pattern welded billet I forged. It's one of a few I welded up and left as bar stock to use at a later date.



After welding up the layers of striaght steel, each 'tooth' was made by cutting a wedge shape out on each side, alternating up the billet, then forging it flat again. It was an attempt from memory of how to make dogs tooth damascus. I don't know if it worked as dog tooth but it's got enough interest there.


The steel is 15n20 and CS70.


 

The handle is going to have a brass bolster, cocobolo handle, some mammoth ivory spacers and some other spacers!
