Nothing Damascus or super gaudy here. Just tough tested working knives, which have their own beauty i believe. Not a ton if pictures, because i haven't taken many recently but will update when i can.

NBLES <> We love photos, and I DESPISE bling in a workplace; I for one respect your kit. I like how wide you reset that bevel, and I particularly enjoyed your swarf photo. ;)

Your pictures are really good, just right it does not need to be Damascus to be good, but a bit of flair does not hurt to be nice sometimes, especially to manufacture.
Thanks for the nice pictures

I'd love to see that rebevel in person, looks clean and crisp. Hope to have that kind of skill myself soon.

Jeff B - A wise man once told me "You'll F up a few knives on the journey to pefection. Messing up knives teaches us how to fix them."

I wish you luck on your journey! Mine has been 6+ years in the making, finally getting to the point where I feel highly experienced with freehand sharpening.
