Pierre, my son is a Combat Engineer currently posted in Edmonton, I'm going to buy you a coffee when we come out and visit him.
Those knives are very beautiful, well done.

Man, that damascus is SHINY!! So used to the flat looking damascus, cool to see the shine on a Damascus piece!

Thanks! I was hoping to get a different result with the finish other than the typical light/dark contrast or full polish that seems to be the normal "Damascus" look. My goal was to get a bright polished finish, yet maintain contrast, a bit of a PITA. I did a hunter a few years ago using a similar construction, that had a bright edge, but dull sides. Ok for a hunter, but this seems a better solution for a kitchen knife.

This one will wear some of Devins raindrop monument for bolsters, liners of some sort, stabilized redwood scales, and I will attempt my first redwood saya. Heck, it will be my first saya period!

Stay tuned!
