Hey Manuel, I always seem have to watch this video every 2 months or so
lol, it's just so inspirational! Even though you have a press and a power
hammer, it looks like you put a lot of blood, sweat, tears (well, maybe
not tears ;D.. ) 'and' time into the making of that pattern and blade.. It
seems as if a lot of other bladesmiths here in the states that have one
and/or the other (press or hammer) happen to have ones wih much more power
(thus making it faster n easier for them),, at least from what I've seen,
so I really respect all the work you put into this, not to mention making
such an awesome filmed and edited video to sit back, relax and enjoy :D

BTW.. Where have you been lately man, or rather how have ya been? I'm on
bladeforums quite often (aka "coldsteelburns") and it looks like you havn't
been on there for over a year now!!.. please come back and continue to
share your beautiful work, I'm sure plenty of guys are missing ya there as
well :) Take care man! :) ~Paul

I watched this video about a year ago. totally lost track of it since I
forgot to tag it. I just watched it again and I was yet again so enraptured
by it, the amount of effort and detail you put into your craft is so
inspiring. shame bladesmithing is dying art. also the music in this video
is fraking amazing. is there anywhere to buy the tracks, I would love to
have them.

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.

A true craftsman...

great job !!!!! i love your video !!

Author BTMO NZ (6 months)
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!

Author Gil Mosko (8 months)
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!

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 :)

This knife is a true work of vision, patience, and craftsmanship. Manuel,
YOU ARE A TRUE ARTISAN!! I have worked with metals most of my life as a
Master Plumber, Welder, and Steamfitter and appreciate the steps which you
took to create this. It is absolutely STUNNING.

P.S. The music is as classy as yourself, and the video is very well done.
Muy Bueno!!

That is a truly beautiful blade.
