Crafting Damascus: Bridging the idea and the material

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free”

– Michelangelo

Apart from the satisfaction blacksmithing brings me, it always seems like magic when metal that is utilized solely for its strength and toughness can be shaped, folded, and transformed into a design that was once only in thought.

An idea is possibility. Enacting possibility is the expression of freedom.
