Pretty proud of this one even though there were quite a few hiccups. Learned a lot from this knife, first successful damascus blade, first hidden tang and first 3 piece handle.
Blade: 1084/15n20
Handle: birds eye maple, g10 spacer, purple heart and buffalo horn

My first chef style knife. This may be a gift or one for myself since it was my first and I had a few "oops" moments. Tested it out on a potato and it makes paper thin cuts

Didnt come out how I thought it would but still pleased with it. 80 total layers of 1084 and 15n20.
Started with 2 5 layer billets.
Top half was billet 1 and was twisted twice and folded 3 times to make 40 layers.
Bottom half was billet 2 and was just folded 3 times.


Hard to see but the end of the same billet
40 layers 2 twists


Lets see how this turns out.
40 layers with 2 twists.

Today's efforts.
Wrought iron and 1095 san mai skinner forged out.
Test piece for copper inlay. If I can nail this it will produce some really neat looking blades.


Handle shaped and acid etched for color. Next up is final sanding on the handle, final edge sharpening and a kydex sheath.


Today's work in progress
