Wootz or crucible damascus

Hello.
Im smelting crucible steel (wootz, crucible damascus or bulat) for knife use. Just want to present my smelts and listen to your opinions on such material nad pattern.

Few pictures


"Cake" of steel, almost 3 lbs


Finished blade, hope you like pattern


Wootz bar, ready to be forged down to blade
1"x0.250"x18,8"

In a few days i will have some phycisal data on steel - hardness, chemical composition.

Feel free to ask any questions
