RWL 34 |
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.
Vinland is a random type pattern, forged from bars of the concentric lamination type and formed by randomly distributed hammering during the forging process. Vinland characteristically has a 'heartwood' in the middle of the blade phase, and a 'fingerprint' in the blade tip area. Ground and Hot Rolled Bars available.
Bluewine is a random type pattern, forged from bars of the Bluetongue and formed by randomly distributed hammering during the forging process. Ground and Hot Rolled Bars available.
Random is a randomly distributed pattern on the flat section,forged from bars of the parallel lamentation type with a laminated 'stripy' effect as material is ground deeper and contoured. Ground and Hot Rolled Bars available.
Grosse Rosen 935,03 (Large Rose)
Big circles coined on billets with concentric damascene layers gives circles in the center and wavy structure towards the borders. Ground bars available.
Odins Eye 935,05
Pattern coining on billets with concentric damascene layers gives eyes in the center and wavy structure towards the borders.Patterns are distinct closer to a flat surface, with deeper contours reverting to a more stripy pattern. Ground bars available.
A tight Ladder-type pattern coined on Bluetounge.
Ground bars available.
Hakkapella 935,04 (Fish Bone)
The pattern is developed during the hot working to a flat dimension. Pattern coining of a zig-zag shaped structure is performed as a last operation. Only ground surfaces available.
Available in: 5 Turn, 20 Turn and 30 Turn Per Meter
The laminated billet is rolled to a round dimension. In a special operation the bar is twisted and then forged to flat dimensions. Two patterns develop as contours deepen: Cross-roads: a band of crosses follow the line where the grinding depth is deepest. Eyeline: a band of 'eyes' follow the line where the grinding depth is minimal. Available in Hot Rolled or Ground surface standard.
A Twist pattern with a wild and dramatic character. Available Ground surface standard.
Rose 935,04 (Rain Drop)
Rose is pattern coined to a knotty surface. After grinding, concentric rings are seen in the middle part. The pattern is more random-like towards the edge. Patterns are distinct and clear closer to a flat surface, with deeper contours reverting to a more stripy pattern. Ground bars available.
Heimskringla 931,08 (TNT)
Twisted Bluetounge round bar, forged to flat dimensions. Ground and Hot Rolled Bars available.
A 'Bluetounge' mosaic bar coined with a ladder tool. The pattern is best observed closer to the flat surface, becoming less pronounced as it contours towards the cutting edge. Ground bars available.
