How To Etch Your Initials Into a Knife Blade.


Author BTMO NZ (3 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 michael gronski (5 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 Gil Mosko (5 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!

Author ladamyre1 (2 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 dobrenniss (3 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 did you weld the four pieces together with? I presume you took this
opportunity to add something through the weld metal.Maybe a stainless rod?

the poor little pump that can't keep up with that giant cylinder! Awesome
work, thanks for sharing it with the world!

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 :)
