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.

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 :)

Author michael gronski (4 months)
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!! 

Author Abraam Cookman (4 months)
Nice vid! I'm a big fan of your power hammer, the design is simple,
effective and well thought out. I like the forging press too, except for
the poor little pump that can't keep up with that giant cylinder! Awesome
work, thanks for sharing it with the world!

Author BTMO NZ (2 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 Tracy Simpson (1 month)
Manuel, that is absolutely amazing! I had no idea where your folding
technique was heading, I was astonished at what an incredible display of
skill and art you created! Truely an awe inspiring piece!

THAT KNIFE LOOKS INCREDIBLE!!! I'm just starting out blacksmithing right

can eventually put the knowledge to good use.
You are a MASTER!!!

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