Did you know that Damascus steel can’t be set on mass production? Its quality depends on temperature, flame color and skills of a craftsman. Let’s have a look at the process of damask steel creation where every little detail is of a great importance.
Damask steel can be made at such a furnace. It consists of heat-resistant bricks.
It takes many days to fire the furnace making it ready for the process of steel casting.
A small pot made of white clay that is produced only in the Chelyabinsk region is put inside the furnace. The pot is filled with metal.
Now it is high time to remove the steel!
Now the pot will be broken.
It is done with the help of a hammer.
And it is the little wonder.
The ingot is divided into two halves.
The metal is made red-hot.
Now with the help of the hammer we’ll make one part of the future blade.
Here it is. The knife is ready.
