    why do i have the sudden urge to make a mid pattern damascus billet, apply this to the end as a handle, and then make a knife out of it . . . can just imagine this as a knife handle in a moderate damascus XD

    Truly brilliant, watch the safety message though. Watched you twist the bale wire on and scoop some of the coke into the fire, with bare hands. Legendary by the way 👍

    Its a lost art sold out to overseas cheap labor. This is the sort of thing that needs to be passed on to generations. Very nice.

    I like the aesthetic of the split in the end I think that is character and detail. I know you know it is a fail in the weld and you want to "fix" it but also consider that there is no strength needed there and sometime gaps are attractive.
