V##eo Review... This is a GOOD v##eo!

Scripture Damascus With Raymond Rybar

Any of you folks who are working with Damascus... you need to see this v##eo! Gene sent me a preview copy, and I have to say that it changed the way I look at a lot of things in relationship to putting detail (pics, words, etch) into damascus.

Its always been a ton or work to put letters, words, etc into a billet. Ray has done a fantastic job of presenting what I cons##er new and insightful information on how to do it.

Don't let the Title fool you! Although the v##eo deals with "scripture" the techniques and methods can be used for whatever you want in your steel.

Great Job and Kudos to Ray and Gene for this great v##eo!

Mine is on the way. I met Ray in 2006, and was blown away with what he was doing.

I just watched the v##eo and and agree that it is very well done and informative. Great job to all concerned.

He was above my novice abilities toward the end and I got lost with the twisting of the final billet. The twist appears quite long. I understand a few other ways of exposing a mosaic pattern but seem to have hit a mental block with this one. Can anyone help put this in perspective?

Just got the info for Batson's bladesmithing symposium at Tannehill State Park in Alabama this coming April 9-11 and Raymond Rybar is listed as one of the demonstrators for damascus.
