    Hello everyone,

It's owed buy the Cambelle family, you can visit there website a the link below. This knife is made from cable damascus and as you can see its a very beautifully knife and very well made (well its lasted me 20 years lol). Any how I hope you all like it.

    I have I big roll of high strength steel cable that on day I'd like to forge into flat bars to make knives out of. But I still have a lot to learn before I try that.

    Beautiful knife!

    I had never heard of cable Damascus knife steel, and now I want to try working with it. I'm gonna need to get a bigger forge though I think.

    I am going to start checking yard sales for a big long toolbox and an electric leaf blower. I want to get set up like this guy and start making leaf spring swords and machetes.:cool:

    That looks cool. I'd have to have a vent hood and some kind of flame arrestor .

    Some full sheets of ductwork stock and some zip screws will have you under a smoke hood in no time. Maybe some fireplace screen for a flame arrestor?
