My name is Dobrin Evgeny Yurevich. I use composition of U8A+12KHN3A for making working knives from «wild» damascus steel, I make 3 000 layers as a standard, cutting edge hardness after heat treatment is 56...58 HRC, the same composition I use for cutting edge of mosaic knives. For long-length knives I use the composition of U8A+60S2+12KHN3A, hardness after heat treatment is 52...54 HRC. For mosaic I use 65G and nickel in addition to the ones mentioned above.
