Hi, here is my first part of entry #1. I made this blade awhile ago, 712 layers Damascus steel, 1084, and some
other steel I don't remember, this will take some time. So far I ground this to 400 grit, and put fireplace cement on the back to differential hardening, it take s about 3 days to dry, then tempering, etching with aqua regia acid, got a guard, and handle. The slingshot will be based on how this turns out. I am thinking of bloodwood馃槉馃槉 I do have a blacksmith shop!

Well here it is! Picture heavy, so I may do more than one post. This was fun, I haven't made a knife in two years, it was too hot out too forge, but I have a box of blank knives I make when it's cool, to be finished whenever. Made the handles for both from bloodwood burl, beautiful wood, but very toxic. Both guards are nickel silver, I had a terrible time getting them even on the slingshot. I am going to hand it up tomorrow, it shouldn't be raining. Hope you like it as much as I do. The knife is extremely sharp, as it is differentially tempered, as Japanese swords, it may show as a darker hamon
