Making Damascus that’s strong enough to Handle the ballistics of a firearm is a Big undertaking. It requires some serious tools. I forge weld my material with a Chambersburg Pneumatic power hammer. This hammer was built in the 1970’s which makes it one of the last ones made. It was built for Reynolds Metals in Oregon (Reynolds Aluminum Foil) It’s 11 feet tall and weighs 36,500 lbs. It has a 1000 LB striking head. The Lower Anvil goes into the ground 55” and weighs 9000lbs. I love the fact that these massive machines still require a man holding material in tongs to operate them with a foot pedal. Not for the faint at heart… #jessejames #JJFU #madeintexas

Hi y’all. I just finished this knife set. All full 100 layer damascus blades in 1095/15n20/52100 steel. All the blades were made from the same damascus billet but each was patterned differently as you can see. They are finished with Textured bronze bolsters and walnut handles as usual.

5.5” Single bevel Nakiri
10” double bevel chef knife
4” pairing knife

The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.
This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).
This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.
