  1. Absolute BLAST hanging out with you in the shop and CANNOT wait to share the rest of this project!

  2. A Squid says:

    Instead of drilling holes, i want to see one where you carve your name into it, with holes around it. So it comes out with the raindrop pattern around a name! Is this possible?

  3. Impulse vL says:

    What is the powder that he is sprinkling onto the billet while it is hot?

  4. GrxmReaper says:

    Best music at the start yesss

  5. Audio was off I made about 12 seconds before I couldn’t watch anymore

  6. Been watching almost every video you put out. my question is if a person was interested in learning how to do all of these things where would they start SAFELY to do so?

  7. mctuble says:

    Can they 3d print a billlet for you to forge? Perhaps 3d print with different types of steel somehow. If so print a design out of a different one and treat that as Damascus to dirty it up. Just a video I'd like to see even if it doesn't produce anything great.

  8. So did you learn your showmanship like you learned blacksmithing or is it just part of your personality, enjoyable either way

  9. JEFF_K says:

    I would suggest long sleeves while working in forge.

  10. Dan Unger says:

    I'm just glad you're not grinding pepper into your Damascus.

  11. JS Armoury says:

    What is the first song called?

  12. DJ Stride says:

    I watch EvanAndKatelyn and came over after seeing your colab with them. I am only 4:40 into the video and am already loving your editing skills, your personality and your style. I'm definitely looking forward to watching more of your videos.

  13. What are the chemicals you dip the steel in at around the 9:30 mark?

  14. You could write something on the blade with this technik!

  15. Parker P says:

    Alex you should try to make a jelly Damascus knife from a leaf spring I feel that would be a epic video

  16. MrTechEasy says:

    How do you determine what the pattern will be? I've seen dragons breath, raindrop, tiger stripe etc, what determines the pattern?

  17. Neelam Yaja says:

    Pls make a video of rainbow pattern made by tibetans

  18. Allen Sparks says:

    How did I miss this one? Well i guess i dont dont miss it now.

  19. Brent Groen says:

    I whould murder for a demascus thea spoon

    I LOVE THEA

  20. Rob Thomas says:

    Alex boss you’re British surely you can think of a better word than awesome for something good

  21. I need this kind of woman in my life.

  22. Muneera says:

    Evan and katelyn brought me here. Subscribed

  23. Steve Black says:

    loved the raindrop pattern. have you tried machining in your sideways S logo many times and seeing what the pattern looks like?

  24. honz says:

    Hrmmm … Why not make bullet-drop damascus using real bullets now that you're out of the UK. 😀

  25. Just wondering if ya could make pinball balls out of this material
