    Had some fun making my own damascus recently, I'll soon be selling knives using it, or billets if anyone wants to make their own. This is some random pattern and some ladder pattern, both 720 layers. I think more experimentation might be needed with ladder, but I'm pretty happy with the random!

    Making a chef knife from my damascus. Slight miscalculation has meant 864 layers on this one. HT tomorrow, it's only at 60 grit right now so the pattern isn't popping out, but it looks quite nice.

    You're really making me want to say dibs.

    Lovely! Were you shooting for a thousand plus? Two steels in the Damascus or more?

    I was shooting for 720. Unfortunately my 144 times table is a little rusty. 1080 and 15N20 in it. I got it heat treated today, doing some more grinding on it tomorrow to hopefully get a good look at the pattern.
