    Alec, how about running a couple of cut tests for the katana? And sheath making, of course.
    I can imagine how annoyed you might be with the blade, yet there's a strong need to see both how it cuts through the very fabric of reality and how you would carry it around should the z day arrive.
    Best regards,
    Rafael

  • Andrew Finnell

    I hope someone can see this and explain something to me. If you weld two pieces of steel together, aren’t you mixing the material used to weld with the steel? Meaning it’s no longer pure steel. And doesn’t that change the strength of the material?

    • Gareth Baus
      Gareth Baus 10 days ago

      With modern welding methods it is generally good policy to select a filler that is compatible with the material being welded, but with Damascus the tack welds are ground off and forge welding doesn't use filler so that isn't an issue anyways.
