    Hopefully you will be able to use some unforged pieces for bolsters.
    Many of the iron meteorites have cool patterns when etched that would be messed up by heat treating.

    Delbert ground a dagger blade for me from a gibeon meteorite slice.
    After the knife was completed I messed up the etching so I need to re-etch the blade.

    Meteorite is cool stuff. Magical powers too.
    Supposed to protect you from werewolves and such.
    Since I have had mine I haven't seen a single monster so it must be working.

    Wow that a serious piece of space rock!
    I've seen pictures of this stuff pattern welded with pure iron or "butter". It looked stunning, but he had etched it with something a bit different. I'd have to look up what.
    What are you doing for carbon?

    Theres a really amazing and cool story as to how I came across the piece of Meteorite.. But Ill just say this..... God is GOOD! and it never ceases to amaze me how he orchestrates stuff!

    As far as when the WIP will start.. Its gona be a week or so, Randy Jr. is finishing up a order. Then barring any unforeseen stuff. We will start the process to forge this space rock into something resembling a bar of steel.. Then turn that into a billet of damascus! And followed up by making it into a sweet kitchen cutter!

    Also wanted to add a Thanks you to Mr. Delbert, who took a few minutes of his busy day to talk to Jr about the forging process giving us a little better chance of this working out.. right out of the gate. Thanks Del!!

    This is gona be a AMAZING, AWESOME, and PHENOMENAL experience for us, and a learning one at that.. Thanks again for posting.

    Ill start a NEW WIP thread ASAP.
    Randy

    Randy,
    You are welcome for the information, however anyone that knows me knows that it is not possible fo me to have a conversation that lasts only a few minutes.
    Del

    I think That Randy Jr will do fine, but it will be his greaest challenge to date, and I promise that grinding on this will be more of a challenge for you than you have ever done. Be prepared to be patient.

    Delbert, Talking with you is always a pleasure. I can hardly wait to meet you in person and get the opportunity to shake your hand and thank you in person..

    I snapped a few pics of the slab of meteorite that were working with. It dont look like much now. But if everything goes to plan (which it seldom does lol) This slab of space rock is gona be one heck of a beautiful piece of damascus!!
