so many wasteful offcuts in Damascus. what is the practicality of collecting all of them and doing a completely random offcut Damascus? wouldnt it be greener? less waste? i feels like it would.
my inner hippie would be proud.

And can I just say, Alec is slowly getting that "boss" pose and voice more and more. Very professional.

I’ve been thinking you should forge together a bunch of cut-offs and make something. It would be a “grandma’s crazy quilt Damascus. You could make a knife, a hatchet, a spoon, a ladle or any number of other Damascus items.

Hey, so question: what does the powdered flux actually do to the metal when you pour it on there and smack it? Do you put it on 2 pieces of metal that aren't fully set together?

Alec - "Very nice" as he looks away disinterested... lol.
I just thought it was so funny cause it's so out of character. And most likey not what it was meant to look like.

This is an excellent edited video. Sound good, light so so, camera good (not in freehand) almost the quality we’ve seen in the old world. The content is an excellent format. I think that Alec as a Moderator and shop owner would be a classic format which is working. Keep the trail and error theme also for the business side. It would be really interesting.. anyways great vid!

Serious question for will or Alec: why do you only clean up 3 sides? rather than 1 vs 5?
Oliver Nope
Oliver Nope - 3 måneder siden
errr, *4*. I assume you don't have my level of skill (e.g. making an arbitrarily varying number of sides)
