Understandable.


Il agree I was stupid not to issue a "do not"

And I was also stupid to think maybe this would be one thread without a history lesson.


I lol'd at that post.

I knew some history too but these guys are interesting (you too) by knowing so much about the science of forging, like you do too. 😊

Btw, the possible common thread between the production of "Damascus" style implements and "Tamahagane" is to be found in India, where wootz was potentially available to traders of both locals. The process was begun, historically, almost simultaneously in 'Syria' and Japan.

Too anal for you?


Nah, not for me....but the "anal" reference was only you and your interpretation of my use of "replicate", that's all. "Clone", "approximate", "ape", "imitate"....they are all interchangeable in my sentence, as there certainly was no implication of stealing "tech" or deviousness in my post. I meant it's a style that has been kept alive by others...and I'm cool with that!

Damascus pattern faceplate and battery tube of stainless steel. This laser-etched artwork can be any pattern, or any design...lasers are awesome!

And while not cast or weld techniques, this "cheap and easy" technique will be most people's entry into Damascus World, lol.

I'm not interested in knives, where Damascus is used most....in the vape world, most modders are replicating the look of Damascus with lasers.

What do you think? I hope to see this more often in mainstream mods!

C4, I'm sorry I mistook you for one of the Nazis.

Eric, I'm glad to see at least one person "had a good time" reading the thread.





Flagged the thread and requested it to be deleted. This is the exact fucking issue that happenes anytime "Damascus" is mentioned..... Il take a further mental note to never use that word again here.








And a comment towards Ford vs Dodge, give it 100ish years and they will both be owned by the same parent company. Give it another 1000 years.... No one will care what make or model, it's just a piece of shit that polluted our later generations homeland...



History wether we like it or not, is steadily trying to be erased by our current generations anyways.







Edit


Here's the tomato knife



Not "real" damascus, but still a folded steel forged blade. Either made by the Indians on that reservation, or whoever before it found its way onto their land.

BTW Skeeets, that is a very nice pattern steel blade you have there. I knew a smith on one of the New Mexico Indian Reservations that made small folded steel blades, that was in the mid 90's. I have one and the pattern is remarkably similar.
