comment How do Tamahagane, Damascus, and Toledo Steel compare?
The Wiki article on Damascus steel doesn't support any of the claims I mentioned.

comment How do Tamahagane, Damascus, and Toledo Steel compare?
@Gangnus It is not "common knowledge". It's obviously false claims, that you present as facts. This makes this not very useful. There is no support in your sources for any of the claims I mention above.

comment What were the advantages of dual power in the beginning of Castro's Cuba
@Lohoris The only thing in my answer that is a matter of opinion is that I think dictatorships is a bad thing. Nothing else is opinionated, and hence nothing else can be biased. Your refusal to explain what is biased confirms this.

There are separate opinions on Damascus steel. Some claims are that it's based on wootz steel, which is not pattern welded, but crucible forged. Other than that, good answer.

Also, your claim that it's folded many times every day is not belivable. Not only don't we know the exact process, folding it several times a day for a year, even with a low count that would be a folding of at least a thousand times. That would make each individual layer less than an atom thick, so such a process could not produce the typical Damascene patterns. Also it's generally assumed that Damascene steel wasn't pattern welded at all. But this is less certain. In short, you can do a basic separation from fact by removing those parts of the legend that are impossible.

@Gangnus There is no evidence that Damascus steel is so fantastic as you claim it to be. You certainly could not use a Damascus sword as a belt, nor would it cut other swords in half. Swords did sometimes break into pieces, and a pattern-welded sword is less prone to this happening, but that does not mean that with a Damascene sword you would be able to cut other swords in half. You are just much less likely to have your sword break.

The hyperbole about Damascus steel really detracts from this answer. It would be better if it separated the myth of Damascene steel from the facts.

comment Economic effects of the Cuban Revolution
-1 There has been no positive effects of the revolution. Although inequality has been lowered and poverty reduced, the same things have happened all over the world, and often to much greater effect. It's easier to get rid of poverty in a rich country.

comment Why does only Iran have a Governor of the Jurisprudence?
@moudiz It is only your opinion that they needed the help of the Mehdi. It is also only your conjecture that they needed to have a position called Wilayat al Faqih to get that help.
