I am going to make a time lapse of making a smaller draw knife. I made 2 larger ones and both were too springy for what needed done. So, let's see how long it takes to make another.

The handle was literally a piece of firewood at 3pm.





So you should be able to see the damascus clearly now, and on the BP stamped side you can see it layered on unevenly so when I ground the final form it got weird.

On the O-1 tool steel section, you can see a darker section, this is the truly hardened part, so we got a bit of a hamon, though that wasn't the plan.
