Damascus forging steel choices.

Mon Apr 07, 2014 3:54 pm

I'm ready to try my hand at forging some twisted Damascus. I am wondering about the best choices for a carbon steel pairing. I was thinking something in the 1080 class for one. What would be a good one to pair with this? Unless you've got a different pairing. I plan on starting with 7 layers. Also, what thickness of the layers should you start with?

In so much as I feel like I could answer your question......I might recommend a friendly email to Devin Thomas to inquire. He's typically very friendly with information and you'll not find a better resource on damascus forging any where on the planet.
