pure art...this is amazing!

Author lsubslimed (1 month)
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

A true craftsman...

Author ladamyre1 (4 months)
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 Gil Mosko (7 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!

Mr. Quiroga, a true craftsman you are. You cannot put a price on something

Author BTMO NZ (5 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!

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

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