Test of sharpnes and hardness
Blade was made by Marcin Manikowski "Gas", Its bulat (wootz) which he crafted and forged on his own. The rest was made by me. The pattern of carbonics is very soft and dense, wchich is tipical for most of "Polish" bulats. Pattern on the blade was oxided to protect from rust, and make it more. visible. The blades made by Marcin were flawless with both durablity and agression of the cutting.
