Used in Indian and Middle-Eastern sword making, Damascus steel may very well be one of the most allusive mysteries of the engineering world. Fashioned by blacksmiths, the supremely tough metal was known for being stronger and sharper than steel produced in industrial times. Prized for its distinctively wavy surface, many steel-makers have tried to reproduce Damascus steel in more recent years, with limited success. Here we look at the history behind Damascus steel, and whether it truly is a lost technology. Read the whole article here - http://www.shapecut.com.au/blog/is-damascus-steel-a-lost-technology/
The first program in the series looks at the achievements of the first Islamic dynasty, the Umayyads, who established their capital at Damascus. Their regime spread throughout greater Syria and they left a rich architectural heritage. This includes two of the great surviving Islamic buildings, the Great Mosque of Damascus and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. The program emphasizes how the early Islamic builders and architects used ideas and materials inherited from their Byzantine predecessors.

This was more or less an experiment to try making what appears similar to pattern welded steel using two contrasting layers of wood. While it wasn't a complete success, it does show promise and I will try this method again on a future "real" knife project as the handle scales, and use two (or three) different types of wood.

This video covers the recent and more distant history of an eighteenth-century period room and its remarkable journey from Damascus to Los Angeles. It documents a four-year long process of study and conservation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Now restored, the room exudes a kind of grace, warmth and beauty, which is in keeping with its original function as a place for welcoming guests.

I had the opportunity to spend some time with my good friends Nate Runals, in whose shop this was filmed, and Robert Burns of Wilderness Ironworks who guided me through the process of forging a damascus, silver lined ring. The steel is 18 layers of alternating wrought iron and 15n20 nickel steel. For a detailed photo tutorial and excellent written explanation of the process, please visit this link to the Bladesmith's Forum where Robert describes his process. http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=33249&hl= Interested in a ring like this?

This is the 3rd part of our documentary series uncovering the process of making Scandinavian Damascus steel or pattern welded knife. One of the most skilled bladesmiths in the Baltic States - Chris has recently joined our crew. This movie is a dedication to him with an honor to his skills and experience. Special thanks to the band Foreign Fields for allowing us to use and license their song "Fake Arms" as a soundtrack for our movie. "It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten t...
ZenSu Be Creative: Functional Art In this video I customize the wooden handle of a Japanese Damascus (Sashimi) knife. The knife in the video is from: Tokio knives with an HRC 60 Rockwell steel hardness and a 21.5 cm blade and is a 67 layer Damascus steel blade. The wooden handle is Beech wood. As an artist I like to work with things and change them because I am naturally creative. I sanded down the wooden handle and cut the top of the handle to create an older / used / weathered look. I treated the wood many times using virgin olive oil over many hours .. and later I burned the surface of the wooden handle to create the dark pattern effect I wanted for that knife. I use this to show people how to be self-creative. Continuing this video series to inspire people to be self-creative! I...
In times of war, there are those who try to depict the true face of events through art. An Iraqi poet and photographer chose to defend Iraq in his own way. After his exhibitions in Iraq and Lebanon, Damascus was the next destination for Ali al-Amara to share the history of Iraq’s war against ISIL.

Unlike you may think, Syria is more than just bloodshed and killing. Besides the everyday life, which continues of course - even when we don't realize it - there is a rich cultural, political and religious life. Here we give you a little insight and start with fine arts - of course. Most of what you see here are videos and photos taken in April of 2012.

This story of the Katana sword provides a unique insight into the Samurai masters and the swords they use. Probably the most recognised of all martial arts weapons, the Katana and the art of japanese sword making is awe inspiring. This up-close look at the making of and fighting with a Katana provides an explosive and visually stunning piece of cinematography.
