Wootz or crucible damascus

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

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

Feel free to ask any questions
