Introducing the breathtaking Riptide (Ladder) Steel from Baker Forge!


Our latest layout is designed to be a showstopper, and we're sure you'll agree. We begin with a 100 layer damascus cladding, which then flows seamlessly into a segment of three shims. Two copper shims perfectly complement a jet black 1084 fat shim. The layout is then capped off with a 100 layer damascus core.

This layout has everything you're looking for! With lots of damascus for high chatoyance, dual copper shims for extra pop, and a thick, dark 1084 shim that takes the entire look to new heights.

But that's not all. Our new method for creating ladder pattern gives a uniform pattern across every bar regardless of dimensions. Giving loads of action in every layer!




- 15n20/1084 Damascus cladding, copper shim, 1084 shim, copper shim, damascus core. All patterned in our new tight Ladder pattern. 

- Flat Ground!!!

 (Please read if you wish to have your billet rolled thinner or surface ground) 


We have a new system in place for accepting requests for billet rolling and surface grinding services. Please click this LINK or see the product below called (Billet Services) This will need to be added to your cart along with your billet during checkout if you wish to have it rolled thinner or surface ground prior to shipping. 


Any billet purchased without this add-on will NOT be eligible for these services.
