Updated August, 6th, 2002

From my research on the web, the best description of the pattern welded steel could be found in the Don Fogg site , if you do not know this wonderfull source of information, I recommand you the visit.
P Reverdy

Don, to illustrate the mosaic Damascus concept publishs some pictures of Pierre Reverdy work..
Here is a beautiful hunting knife produced by Pierre Reverdy for the famous Holland & Holland Company.

"Perhaps the highest form (of pattern welded steel) was developed in Japan. The Japanese through a process of forge welding wrought iron and a high carbon product called tamahagane produced swords of exceptional quality and beauty." Don Fogg
The japanese process has been described in pictures in a French cartoon.
