Pattern's Available
The illustrations below are simply bars from the DAMASTEEL stock put directly on the scanner. There is a natural variation of the pattern appearance. Two bars of the same pattern never look exactly alike.


Round Bar Patterns
All of the Damasteel flat stock starts off as one of the round bars below. The round bars come with different types of patterns in the cross section. The Parallel, Concentric Rings and Bluetounge round bars can also be Twisted, Coined or Patterns cut into them and machined flat again to produce the many beautiful Damascus Patterns for the Artist. Following the forging or rolling Damascene patterns in several directions, random patterns depend on the power of the forging hammer blows and the feed steps. The irregularities look like randomly distributed waves in the linear pattern. Torsion twisting creates a distinctive swirl pattern after the metal is etched. Coining is a method for developing a variety of patterns into a flat bar. Typical Damasteel-coined pattern designs include Odin's Eye, Rose, Hakkapella, and Ladder.
