    What is Randy going to do differently this time? What did he learn from marathoning this thing before?

    Tomorrow morning we will start. The goal is to forge out these 3 materials into a MILLION+++ Layer Billet.

    Hes starting out with a 51 layer stack. composed of 3 materials. 1080, 15n20, and some Band saw blade steel!

    I have been testing the band saw steel.
    So far Im digging the stuff. And the resulting HT and RC have shown it to be a great steel for making damascus or used alone as a knife!

    Some have speculated its to be 15n20. Which it is not.
    Some said L-6.. I dont think it is that either?
    What I do know.. It passes all the tests I have for what makes a good blade and can be heat treated and tempered to 61. It takes and hold a good edge. Enough said!

    I would love to send a piece in or take it somewhere to have it tested. If anyone knows where I can send this to have it tested. or the ability to test it for me. Please let me know!

    Heres the stuff! 51 pieces which is the start of this million + layer billet!


    More to come soon!
    Randy

    Last time was a HUGE success. and I will be starting on the knife from the first million layer billet this month! good things take time..

    I will ask him if there is anything he would of done different tomorrow.
    This time we are using 3 different steels rather then 2.
    Also Jr is talking about patterning this bar. Possibly the highest layer W billet ever. Or doing a twist.. or ladder. etc. Jr is CRAZY and I will just stand back and let him do what he does so well. Then take pictures and share the process with you Knife Knuts!

    Good night
