We’re not joking: The end product is one of the most beautiful knives we have ever seen. This beautiful knife started off its life as a bunch of spent batteries (mostly). This talented blacksmith, with tons of time on his hands, recycles old batteries and an old Maglite flashlight (for the handle) into an amazing knife.
This is the complete process of manufacturing Damascus steel from batteries and stationary knives.
Damascus steel was a type of steel used to make sword blades, and is characterized by distinctive patterns reminiscent of flowing water. These blades were regarded as tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being sharpened to a fine edge.
Damascus steel is also mentioned in several legends, such as the ability to cut through a rifle barrel, or cut a hair falling on the blade.
This video is completely mesmerizing, oddly satisfying, and the end product is something you would probably want for yourself.
