I like the profile and the damascus looks great. Congrats! Give us some details on the steel and HT. It would be nice to learn moreThanks guys!
Don't hate me for this one...I made my own Kramer. Why? I honestly couldn't tell you. It seemed like a fun project. Not sure what to do with it now though as it's obviously WAY too big for my needs. Maybe it will suffer the fate of a real Kramer and sit there looking pretty

Thanks! It's actually the last piece of carbon damascus that I bought before I started making my own. If I remember rightly it was around 300 layers, steel is definitely 1095/15n20. I heat to 1500°f and hold for 10 minutes for 1095, and this seems to work fine for the 15n20 as well. As tempered it should be 60-61hrc. It's taken a pretty nice edge too.I like the profile and the damascus looks great. Congrats! Give us some details on the steel and HT. It would be nice to learn more
Thanks man! I guess if you spend enough time salivating over things you can't afford, you decide on a different tack. Or to quote Jeff Goldblum "Life, uh, finds a way..."It's amazing how many old members are now in the business. I really love your work.
Just tag me, if you like @juice_journoI'd love to enter your giveaway, but I don't use Instagram regularly so I don't know anyone there. Way to go!
