    OK so now that I have the first damascus down I wanted to do another but No steel so I went the poor mans way this billet is made of 4 Jaguar head bolts 3 old files and 8 strips of banding ties . I read somewhere that hardened head bolts had nickel in them and I have 50 head bolts from the old jag days "heavy line mech. for jaguar" so I thought I give it a go and this is what I came up with I folded it one time so 24 layers just could not pound any more my arm was tired from the night before making three knives. I have not finished grinding the knife out yet this just the first grind then cims to see what I had !!!!!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I think he is holding the billet up with his motorcycle in the background.
