I've never seen a pattern like this in a welding... Most handsome!
Some day, I'd really like to learn this technique. It will be enough with rose, drill and twist welding for now x3 That's the limit for me right now..
How the flying heck did you do this?! It's like two serpents and a lightning-flame-thingy!! Awesome beyond words!

Thanks again :)
Well, rose and twist is quite difficult so don´t be to hard to yourself!
Your concepts, broncecasts and helm´s deep are really nice.
The pattern is a type of "firecraker". Not a extreme one but an interesting one ;)

Well the material is not very expensive. I don´t know how much it was exactly but I would say (after 3 years) for the steal, wood and brass.....50€?! May be. The time to do this is the factor that would make a knife/sword expansive in the end.....
Thanks for the comment! And Merry Christmas!

das metall sieht echt genial aus!
es ist immer wieder punktuell verbogen wenn ich das richtig aus den Kommentaren gelesen habe
ich würde zu gerne mir mal eine eigene Klinge machen, muss ja nicht gleich Damast sein ^^
leider weis ich nicht wo ich das mal ausprobieren/lernen könnte -.-
