    Hola! Me encantan tus videos. Aprecio mucho tu esfuerzo para realizar este video por eso es que me gustaría que el video fuera más largo para ver más el proceso de elaboración. Por ejemplo: la parte de elegir la madera para el mando o el momento en el que le haces los horificios al cuchillo para poner luego los tornillos. Gracias a ti por si lo lees.

    I have no intention of becoming a bladesmith but I always enjoy watching your builds. I am curious if my reticence at making finished blades is correct, that the time put into stock removal, sanding, and finishing is as much, or more than, the blacksmithing part. What would you estimate to be the time spent in each step of the build?

    • ZombieNinjaPitbull
      ZombieNinjaPitbull 7 ай бұрын +1

      You can reduce that time spent in finishing in a couple ways though, start with less material and forge in your bevels or use a jig to keep straight lines while sanding... or conversely skip the finishing process all together and just get good at making patterned steel stock and just sell to the crazy knifemakers that don't bother with the forging process at all.... there are a lot of those weirdos out there...

    Seriously cool design, Forge welding has virtually no limits to the designs that can be attained, I think I would start slicing all kinds of Slivers of various steel and arranging them in such a way so that the blade looked like it had shattered and been reforged together! similar to the way a piece of glass shatters into shards, from one focal point, I'd pick a spot on the blade's edge and radiate all the pieces out from that one spot, getting larger shards further from the "impact point" on the edge, and use powdered steel to fill in the voids, just like this blade! I know Fire Creek could build this design. How about it Fire Creek? If I sent you a design as a challenge, would you build it?

    A question of curiosity... is there any tangible difference in forging the tangible as you did vs just using a band saw to cut the profile? Obviously I can acknowledge the material savings but it does take more time. So I wonder if the cost in materials saved is worth the extra time.

    • Fire Creek Forge
      Fire Creek Forge  6 ай бұрын

      In this case yes; forging the tang allows the solid steel rod to run the entire perimeter of the handle instead of being ground off where the blade narrows into the tang.

    When I was a kid I made a small knife from a circular saw blade and used some Hickory from a busted axe handle for the scales. Unfortunately, I didn't know a thing about tempering the blade (long before computers and internet) so it wouldn't hold an edge. But, it did look good and made a real good letter opener!

    Very nice! I was afraid it wasn’t hot enough at the press. Get you a variety of die polishing stones. Gesswein is a great brand. They are about the size of a carpenter pencil. Use the butt end with WD 40. You will cut your hand polishing time by half. Your burning glove reminds me of once welding pipe on my ranch fence-line here in Texas. I had 3 “exchange students” helping me. Romero said: “¡Fuego Patron!” I raised my hood and saw nothing. Went back to welding. Two more times he yelled “¡Fuego!” Again I saw no fire. Then Romero said: “¡Pañuelo Patron!” My effing bandana around my effing neck was on fire!

    I thought those steel balls add frictionless cutting if left un-hammered so that when you slice watermelon the slices would not stick to the knife when split open. A knife with a lumpy surface should prevent stuff sticking to the blade surface

      @Yilmaz Ayten exactly.
      It’s pattern welding. Damascus is Wootz, not pattern welding. Damascus was made from crucible steel, Pattern welded steel was typically not; although it can be as there’s no rules to where one sources his steel stock from and if it’s steel made via the crucible process then crucible steel it is.
      I prefer pattern welded over Damascus. Also, the Japanese method is pattern welding as well. San Mai can be plain or patterned. San Mai just means three layers. High carbon core and iron/low carbon cladding.

      So what yer saying is the fold makes it damascus. So then it should actually be called a damascus Japanese katana.
      The way to make that particular steel has been long gone. 11 with 347 folds is one. Damascus steel in today's world is a design not a type of steel or how it is forged, again katana as an example.
      I'm sure I'm wrong. You have the densho that tells what metal where and how many times it folds.
      Till then I'll listen to the people who actually do it and this is only 1 of 15 I know who do it. Well, cept one, he's dead, that would be my pa

    I have a suggestion, I'm not sure if it works.
    sandwich the bearing balls in between two pieces of steel, and make sure that the steel is touching one another by pre-drilling half sphere holes in them so you can fit the balls, and then play with the placement of the balls to get different patterns.
