High Carbon Damascus Steel! I made this today, I think It turned out super well.
Let the great debate of whether or not this is historically accurate begin... Spoilers, It Isn't. Just chill and enjoy. I purchased a video camera today. I'm gonna start making some videos on how these are done! https://www.instagram.com/terrafortunadesigns https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TerraFortunaDesigns

I must have
i want to see regular objects made out of damascus steel ... nuts and bolts, car parts, radiators ... i think it would be funny somehow
You are right. It did.
...a whole building
Yay more things I really want but can't afford!
It’s beautiful, OP.
Nice ring. Said the actress to the vicar.
...what is Damascus steel?
That is absolutely gorgeous
Vicar is a person who knows a lot about acting?
Is it St. Swithens Day already?
Imagine a tiger, then imagine hammering one into the shape of a knife and you've basically got it.
That is... kinda accurate, and also... not.
Its different types of metal pattern welded together.
Pretty ring, but wouldn't it have been better to make it out of nickel and stainless? That way it has high corrosion resistance.
I think you'd soon after prefer a lot of those things to be made out of high-performance alloys again.
I know what @OP said, but this is pattern welded steel. Some clever cunts figured out how to make true whatever-you-want-to-call-it steel.
It’s a steel made with a wavy surface pattern produced by hammer-welding strips of steel and iron followed by repeated heating and forging.
A customer of mine brought in a 1911 in full Damascus with Meteorite trigger and sights, and mammoth ivory grips. Cost north of a 100k...
Your ring sized looks like some of our conveyor rollers
That is a well-used mandrel
Jet fuel can't melt damascus steel beams
Originally its a high carbon technique, that somehow made nanocarbon tubes grow in the steel. No one knows how. Modern damascus steel is
Usually either high and low carbon steel folded together, then hammered out semi cold to give it tiger stripes. It is more popularly made
Using nickle and steel though. Its much prettier and more durable, and you can not only make stripes, but also shapes, runes and letters
Pm me for more info. Im not writing out the process with 140 characters
Welcome back to the shop it's FANTASTIC to have you here.
Personally when I get married, my wedding band is telling women "I'm taken", hers though is basically "this is how much he loves me".
Simultaneously the most baller ass/cringily douchetastic thing I've heard in some time.
Did you bring my hammer?
Inb4 pedants getting their panties in a bunch about the use of the term damascus steel
Gotta love clever cunts ♂️
Isn’t this what valerian steel is based off of?
it is not for 2 reasons Damascus steel was made in Damascus hence name and 2 , noone knows recepie so you cant all it so technically. 1/2
similar as"roman concrete" who's different then ours and scientist actually would want to know recepie as Roman concrete gets stronger as1/2
as time progresses and would be actually great to use in modern time
It's one of those things that would be totally sweet to see and maybe try at the range, but I'd never want to own.
Dildos, buttplugs, fish tanks
pee is stored in the balls
yeah, you completely missed the point ... it's a joke
Oh yeah, I've heard of those. They're usually funny though, right?
You're so fucken wrong that people without your attitude have figured out how to make the original Damascus AND roman concrete.
I'm still unclear. Is Damascus a type of steel or just this folded metal with layers thing? I've been sticking with regular steel knives.
Damascus steel is two types of steel layered, twisted, folded, and fused over and over again
It’s a technique rather than an actual steel
Ah. Thanks. So being a layered blend the metal characteristics will vary? Can case hardening mitigate this?
It completely depends on the types of steels used, most commonly high and low carbon. There is also stainless steel Damascus to
Case Hardening - I can’t say that I’ve ever seen any case hardened Damascus, the closest thing would be Timascus steel
Id also recommend looking up mokume gane too. Super easy to make at home! All you need is copper, brass, nickel, a vice, pliers & blowtorch
My fiancé and I have had custom Damascus steel rings for our wedding, can’t wait to wear it.
How is it so glimmery like it has a clear coat for a car painted over it?
