    1 MILLION layer damascus billet!

    Jr came in from the shop today with a strange sort of crazy look in his eye. mumbling something about making a MILLION LAYER damascus billet!

    After talking to him about it for a few minutes I quickly realized, I was not going to be able to talk him out of it.. So I said, Go for it!!!

    The quest for a Million layers begins! Go Jr. Go!!

    Has anyone seen a million layer billet of damascus? I imagine some of the *** swords are over a million layers.

    Just thought this would be interesting to share. what do ya think?

    Hers starting with a 25 layer stack.. and going from there! Hes at 500 layers now. and the count will really start jumping up from here! I dont know what the pattern will look like, I imagine its gona look like a bar of 1095 with a little more shimmer! LMAO!

    But the edge will be ridiculous!!!

    Nice!! OK so hes at 500 layers now and I have not taken a single picture yet! lol I better break out the camera for this.

    If he keeps on working at this pace and everything goes well, It wont be long, Maybe a couple days!
