Bridle buckles

I had a billet of steel that was supposed to be a large buckle blank for a buckle builder in California. As I was cutting the blank out, I came upon some bad welds in the damascus steel that I could not, in good conscious, send out. I started cutting out the bad places and this is what I came up with.

So goes making damascus steel. if you are not prepared for a few failures, your going to spend a lot of time being disappointed around the shop.
