    Thanks for posting the article. I really enjoyed it and learned some new stuff as well.
    We went to the MET last Spring and the swords and weapons on display there are amazing.

    -So, in summation:
    A sword may have an edge of wootz steel but it won't be made entirely of wootz if it's any good; and,
    Damascus probably refers to water-patterned steel and not to some pace in Syria; and,
    Blood still acts and smells like blood if heated or disturbed.

    This matches my own readings and experiences.

    Thanks for the links!
