Attached you'll find a few images from Gustafsson & Sjögren about the making of Mosaic Damascus steel.


Picture descriptions:
4. The frame is filled with material arranged in a pattern and ready to get heated up.
6. The frame is put in the oven...
7. Johan begins to work the frame by using a sledge hammer.This part is very important and should only be forged by hand. This is called forge welding, wich means that all the different steels forges in to one by forging fast and easy at the exact right temperature. To get a clean forge weld, Johan uses Borax.
8. The work continues by using the air hammer to further shape the steel.
12. The initial damascus steel shows the pattern that was previously created.
13. The Damascus steel rod is cut in four pieces.
14. The picese are formed into a shape that shows the dial pattern but a lot of work is still required.
15. The four Damascus steel rods have been forged together.
16. The Damascus steel base material is cut to show the resulting pattern.
17. The final result of the Damascus pattern, ready for cutting and continous work to become a dial.
