    I hope everyone gave you the gratitude you upmost deserve. Yes they paid for your workshop but you didnt have to do this. Damascus is an artwork much like the classic painters we know today. Some may take your knowledge and put their twist onto it. But your willing to teach people this artform and that right there is priceless. Congratulations Kyle!

    I think teaching people helps take it to the next level. Also getting to use other machines build more "skill diveristy" i think.

    I would imigine teaching a live class would be a whole new challenge. I use to have people ask me why I don't do live tutorials & my answer was always "because, just sitting there watching me grind bevels or make a knife is pretty boring" it's a whole different ballgame when you can edit everything & make it interesting... Glad to see you made it home safely, was following on Instagram, looked like you had a blast... Hope you & the family stay safe through these next few weeks, take it easy...

    Looks like such a great time, and with a great setup for everybody to flow from tool to tool without each person having to wait much. That would definitely be heartbreaking to have a student's billet end up as scrap, for both the student and the teacher 😬 lol. From the thumbnail, thankfully it looks like everything went well though, so I'm looking forward to seeing those patterns close up! I'm glad you all made it home safely too 🙏🏻. Hey, did I happen to see Keith Fludder there as well? Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Kyle, I've had a Kyle Royer Damascus binge watch tonight. With the South African Rand being R17.38 to $1 it will be super cheap for you to come visit us in South Africa and have a working holiday, COVID-19 being a bit of a problem though. I have some ideas, would love to attend a workshop like your Aussie visit, but probably couldn't afford it, but would love to discuss possibilities.

    All these flakes which are coming out via forging are pieces of metal or the oxidation of the metal?
    At the phase with the 4 pieces of the steel (in my fantasy) if you added a stainless steel at the middle and forged again I think than an interesting damascus shape can produced .....
    Thanks and my best regards from Athens / Hellas

    Still a wee little confusing, you used squaring dies instead of forging on the bias correct? Then rotated 90° and re squared on the bias again? What seemed different is you 4 wayed twice?? Then tiled the billet on a 35° or 33° whatever your cut was. Did you flip the tiles to mirror as shown in the past?
    Doing some cable tomorrow.. forge on!

    Only critique i have is you need to see a chiropractor! Or you won't be able to create your works of mastery into your old age.
    A tip is every morning get up and hang of a bar so you feet are off the ground. This will use gravity to straighten your back and stop you becoming the hunch back of Notre Dame!

      @KyleRoyerKnives You know Kyle ever since I watch you make that beautiful sword. I have gone on and built a basic charcoal forge, and have been trying and heating and pounding red hot metal and have collecting and fabricating tools and equipment and now have the beginning of what is starting to look like a bladesmith shop! And though my blades are nothing to what you build. One day my skills will develop to a certain level that will put us at the same place at the same time. Where I will tell you, " TO BE MORE CAREFUL AND NOT MAKE SICK ASS BLADES BECAUSE VERY IMPRESSIONABLE PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF WILL GO OFF AND TRY TO BE LIKE YOU! " You need to be more responsible because irresponsible people like me will stop at nothing to be like you!
