Thread: Bold pattern damascus 240 gyuto

    Bold pattern damascus 240 gyuto

    Call it a WIP! lol! So I forged this one with fewer layers, to check out the appearance of a bolder pattern damascus blade. Again, tis is a blade consisting of 1084 and 15N20. The sunlight is dazzling on this one. Let me know what you think of the coarseness of the pattern. I am still forging high layer count patterns, so this isn't a change, just a "lets see"

    I would have mistaken that for damasteel. I think it's nice! Does the 15N20 have characteristics that make it good enough for edge performance? It'd be a concern of mine in a knife with dammy this bold.

    btw, love the 1 min mark. Your grinds are badass!

    That looks really cool. I like a tight pattern, but that definitely brings another look. Nice job!
    I'm with Eamon, your grinds are almost a signature feature.

    Thanks guys! Appreciate the kind comments!

    Hey Randy, not ladder, more of a random, with some wave, and incidental ladderish lines from the drawing dies. This has no intended pattern.
