Well welcome to the site Lady and gentlemen. I have not made very much Damascus, but it turned out all right when I did. Made it from the standard 15N20 and 1080 steel. I used a Natural Gas forge and a 50 lb. Little Giant trip hammer. Like I said, it turned out OK, but not great. I didn't get the pattern I wanted and can't really sell it for very much as it looks like good quality Made in Pakistan for $5 knives. So I'll sell my Alabama Forge Damascus which you can immediately tell is much much better.
