is dark red from the heat. If it is lighter in color, the blade is too hot and will crack during the hardening process. We quench the blade. Quenching will cause the metal’s molecular structure to crystallize and harden. Once this process is complete, the blade smith will complete the sword blade by hammering the stack to flatten, lengthen and shape the blade, ultimately resulting in a completed Damascus steel blade.
The aforementioned steps present a basic introduction to the making of Damascus steel blades. More advanced topics and techniques will be published as time permits. Below are examples of custom made Damascus Steel swords we have made in the past. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at webmaster @ darksword-armory.com.
