Skip ahead to 21:23 to see a work of art made by a craftsman.

Made from a single piece of steel, I'm impressed. I see so many "Damascus"
pieces made with two kinds of steel welded together. It was refreshing to
see a man actually making a true Damascus blade, that is making a blade in
the old Damascus technique.

Author dobrenniss (29 days)
This video not only shows craftsmanship and dedication but it also shows
creativity when it comes to the blade itself. I have seen and created a lot
of blades before but this blade is just beyond amazing and beyond anything
I would ever be able to create out of a few peaces of steel.

Thank you for sharing this amazing blade with us all

What a total boatload of work! But the final results were so worth it. It
does my heart good to see craftsmanship on this high a level. Mr. Quiroga,
you are one of my new heroes. I even liked the music you chose for the
video, and I normally do not care for music in instructional videos.
Really, I am just so impressed. Thank you!

At every single point on this video, I found myself asking "Why on earth
are you doing this, and what possible purpose could it serve?"

Then I realised what an absolute craftsman you are, and what a difference
attention to detail makes. That is, quite simply, the most beautiful blade
I have ever seen.

Thank you so much for the video!

how they would effect the final product. Congrats on your build

Beautiful knife man , awesome video. I have but one question , I did not
see you using borax during the folding process, not even during the
welding. Please comment on why you didn't .
Thanks :)
