I tried doing a search, but couldn’t find the answer I was looking for. I posted a while back, have since read a million threads, and wanted to ask a hundred thousand questions..... But I always feel like they are too complicated. I’m going to give this one a shot. I have bought a few billets from Dion Damascus, and a few more of Hitachi (3 layer) San Mai, and a S/S clad San Mai. I made a couple knives, they were cool. But.... I’ve noticed some beautiful San Mai blades out there, and I’m wondering if there is a way I can “hot forge”(?) these billets to enhance the patterns. I’m a stock removal guy (for now). I have a small forge with single Mathewson burner (and an Evenheat LB27...if that means anything). I know absolutely nothing about blacksmithing. Do I just heat the billet to a certain temp and beat the hell out of it? Im assuming I would start with a thicker billet, and work it down close to my final blade thickness.....? Thanks in advance.
