I’ve been lurking around the forums for a while learning loads in the process. My interest in knives stems from a love of cooking specifically Japanese style knives.
Haven’t gotten around to building a forge or proper grinder yet but have had a go with a piece of Ebay 1095/15n20 Damascus and my belt sander and with a propane torch managed to harden it this morning. Here is a pre-etched photo.
Looking forward to making some more soon. Thanks in advance for helping me get started.
