Hey all... For the past couple of months, after stumbling upon the Knife forums (which is one of the best things in the internet, by the way) I have been amazed time and again by the intricate and beautiful designs of damascus steel knives...
And this may have been asked hundreds of times but, how do they get those patterns? I mean they are just beautiful and they look like they were drawn or etched by an artist directly into the steel! I've seen some videos where they press the design into the steel, but is that always the case?
I just saw a while ago the dragon's breath pattern... and I was just blown away by how detailed and perfect the design was!
Can someone please enlighten me! How do they do it?
By the way this smiley looks kinda... hmmm... hehe
