The Last Seven Samurai...
The viking did it looooooooong before damascus steel was a thing. The viking method was to take several rods made of slightly different steel, weld them together, twist them around into a certain pattern and then then heat and hammer them until they turned into a single, solid piece. Damascus steel is made using several sheets of slightly different steel and the same procedure. Basically, the difference is that the vikings used rods and whoever it is that actually made damascus steel used sheets. This also resulted in a different pattern. The viking crucible steel has more symmetric patterns and doesn't have as many rings as the damascus steel.
Actually, newest findings show that the Franks they indeed made their own crucible steel. That is all "Damascus" steel is, crucible steel.
It is interesting, however, that you say "Its called Damascus steel for a raisin," considering how Damascus imported their steel from India. The proper name for historical "Damascus" steel is "Wootz" steel, which was imported from India to Damascus, where the swords were forged.
TL;DR the Franks DID make their own crucible steel, Damascus didn't.
