    I made this one while teaching one of my students how to make canister damascus. He wanted to know about all those "striped tactical" blades he see's in the magazines. I told him, instead of adding a coating to the surface of your steel... change your steel. We simply took a square can and added a scoop of 1084HC powder, then dropped in a square of 15N20, then a scoop of 1084HC powder... and so on. I made a fair sized drop-point with a file-worked thumb rest, "splitter" pommel and used stabilized, double-dyed Maple Burl wood scales, faceted them and secured them stainless steel handle bolts.

    Cool Moon, let me know how it goes. If can do anything to help out, just let me know.

    My forge is a home built, single burner propane unit that I'd be glad to send anyone plans of if they'd like.

    I actually have 3 of varying sizes for economic purposes.
