    Fantastic craftmanship, this level of skill is only achieved over a lifetime of devotion to a craft. A little sneaky at the end though, he shows the knife cutting sections of steel of a block and you can clearly see the rolls and chips on the edge , but in the next clip he lays it down on the anvil and the edge is smooth and unblemished.

      @User Name I mean it's still something. It IS pretty standard, and a skill most people can learn. The only thing he doesn't seem to do is use stones and strop the edge on leather (to align microscopic burrs). That's why it doesn't push-cut (pressing rather than slicing), but that's a different type of showmanship from hammering off a metal corner (instead of wood). It's not magic, but it does require effort and training.

      @Pete 양산칼: 모든 방향으로 금속결정이 동일해서 길이방향으로 잘 굽거나 부러질 수 있습니다. 탄소함유량 많으면 부러지는 쪽.
      단조칼: 길이방향으로 두들겨서 늘리는 과정을 반복하면 금속결정이 길이방향으로 정렬되서 칼이 길어도 잘 부러지지 않습니다.
      가운데 탄소함유량이 낮은 연철을 넣으면 길이방향으로 잘 안부러지구요, 바깥에 고탄소강은 날이 잘 무르지 않는 단단한 칼을 만드는 목적이죠.
      두들겨서 늘리고 접어서 겹치고 하는 과정이 많을수록 비싼 칼이 되는거죠. 초반에 원재 여러장을 겹쳐서 작업시작하는 건 단조공정을 줄이면서 같은 효과를 노리는 굿아이디어라 봅니다.

    • J analytics

      The entire process is to make a Damascus kitchen knife. Damascus steel is known as being incredibly strong as a result of it being created from multiple layers of steel, as you saw in the beginning with the steel plates.
      Once the plates are heated and mashed together enough, they twist the mangled metal in order to create even more layers of steel within the blade.
      Think of it like toilet paper. One slice of toilet paper is very thin, but once you crumble up that piece of toilet paper, its made of much more layers and is more usable, although probably not enough to clean 😂, it still works.
      The final finish shows all sorts of lines running throughout the blade, each line represented the line that used to be between each steel plate, but now has been twisted, smashed, heated nearly a thousand times over.
      That’s why he demonstrates cutting basic steel with his Damascus blade, although made from the same metal, the Damascus blade is much denser as a result of the twisting.

      this video isn't about ancient damascus steel. ancient damascus steel was good quality crucible steel, nowadays more commonly referred to as wootz, whereas the stuff in the video is pattern-welded steel, aka modern "damascus steel".
      also good modern steel with no goofy pattern is functionally better than either pattern-welded or oldschool damascus steel.

      @martinskanal I’m not sure why I’m even debating this topic with you, you’ve supplied no new knowledge and what you did supply is flawed at that. I’m quite aware iron cutting isn’t as actual use for knives, how the edge reacts is still telling of quality of heat treat, by the looks of it… lacking, Ive seen much thinner knives (let’s face it these are clunkers) maintain nearly perfect edges while being hammered through steel. And burning tangs on is pure lazy. It does not result in a strong bond I don’t care how many times you say it does, a burned tang handle will always fail one way or another. There are proper ways to go about this such as broaching the hole, which does take a tad longer but renders an absolutely perfect result. Not to mention the lack of hand sanding before acid etching of the steel. Just asking for rust and contaminants to settle in and make home. You can’t fill me with the same run of the mill bullshit you do others I know what goes into a proper blade.

      ​@Roman humphrey I still think the iron cutting is about establishing the qualities of his tempering, nothing more. The iron cutting scene is spliced in towards the end.. I am not even certain it is the same knife. Not all clips in this video are chronological.
      Wether or not this guy is the best traditional knife smith or not, I have no clue, because I don't know anything about Korean knife makers and determining the knife quality based on this heavily edited video alone is not possible. Naturally this video is a sales pitch.. and cutting iron with that knife is part of it. They even provide link for an online knife shop in the description. Anyone in their right mind will know this knife is not recommended for cutting iron, and anyone with eyes can see that edge is damaged from this cutting. Seriously.
      Typically, sales videos about knives will contain cutting stuff a knife should never touch - that includes cutting through shoe soles and frozen foods. And paper, of course. KZclip is full of paper cutting with knives, as if cutting paper with a knife is a reasonable way of establishing sharpness - it is not. Paper will take "scary sharp" out of a razor sharp edge in surprisingly little time - processed cellulose fibers is bad for any edge, regardless of the quality of the blade. Any person with experience sharpening knives will know when an edge is sharp without cutting paper.
      The idea behind the heating of the tang when fitting the blade to the handle is that the knife maker use a too narrow hole for the tang.. the tang will burn away wood as it enters the handle and make just enough room for a snug fit. The tang will quickly cool down in the process, moisture in the wood that is burnt to ash will actually make nearby wood expand a little and compensate for charred wood. Since the tang is tapered, knocking the handle on a table will allow the blade to sink deeper into the handle. When done correctly it will not come loose easily. I've seen this technique used before on wa handles for Japanese knives.. for these knives, the handle is made to be easy to replace.. it is just a different school of thought. If you walk into a traditional knife shop in Japan they will change handle while you wait.

      @martinskanal watch the last clip again he re-establishes an edge after he cut the steel/iron bar. That was one of my points for the deception argument. It’s unrealistic to a true test, if they don’t have a problem lying to you about that what other processes are being cheated without your knowledge. Along with burning on the handle creating an extremely weak bond between steel and wood because of trapped ash and char, I can give example after example but this reply is starting to get kinda long

    It's evident knife making is tough, but it also looks so fun and uniquely satisfying. 😌
