Knifemaking - Twisted Damascus Dagger Blade
A big twisted damascus dagger from a car distribution chain.

Blade Details:
-Long dagger blade with twisted metal.

Blade making process
Distribution chain from a car. I'm filling the spaces with "steel wool" we use to remove crusty food on dishes. (Picture 1)

Chain with a 4mm thickness 5160 plate wrapped around. What you can see on the center are 1070 and 1010 steel plates. (Pictures 2 and 3)

Once I welded it a steel bar for easy handling, I placed it on the can, with two stainless 304 plates on top and bottom to allow easy retrieval of the damascus billet later (if I don't add this two layers, it welds against the can inner walls) (Picture 4)

Off to the oven it goes (old picture, but It depicts exactly what I did with this one) (Picture 5)

I took the already welded steel out of the can/capsule. (It looks funny, but it is properly welded) (Pictures 6 and 7)

Twisting the steel after heating it again. (Pictures 8 and 9)
