Second attemp at making damascus steel by hand, this time forging 1070 high carbon and mild steel from the scrap bin to make a ring.
First weld went decently without any delamination or cracks between the layers, second weld after the hot cut at 3:05
didn’t worked that well… Not sure about the cause, maybe the scales or the heat, would have been better if I repeated the
cleaning and stick welding process instead of trying it hot. Next time!
Pretty sure is not a problem for the use of this damascus, it survived the quench without falling apart,
enough for me and I still love the end result!
