Hi all,

does anybody have experience with Suminagashi multi-layered steel?
I tried to forge migration sword with random pattern. Forging Suminagashi goes really well, so does tempering (62 HRc), etching by acid as damascus. It looks interesting so far.

Michal, I like that a lot. It's a little on the rough side but in this case it absolutely works. It's always good to see more migration swords. Well done Big Grin

really cool...

You've got me intrigued about the steel you are using. Is this a commercially available laminated steel?

Thanks, guys!
It was „experiment“ :-). I was wondering what kind of sword I could make with this blade and I never made Spatha before, so it was it….
I bought Takefu Suminagashi steel from german e-shop http://www.mehr-als-werkzeug.de/category/Staehle-3624_3628.htm. I found it when I was actually looking for something else – it got me interested cause it´s commercially available material and I was curious "how it turns out" after I get my hands on it.
