I really like the herringbone on Salty's cimiter, but Adams Western bubblewrap is amazing. I think they're all pretty amazing.....

Herringbone seemed to sell fast with the ones I just got from Devin.

Let me know what your number one priority is and I'll recommend something.

1. pattern
2. edge holding
3. cost
4. workability (for the manufacturer)
5. stainless/carbon

With the pics of the various damascus steels listed on your webpage, have these been ground or is it the flat, etched billet? The Bubble Wrap looks really cool when it's ground on the knife, but the flat billet may not tell the whole tale as it looked kinda like raindrop. I remember when I got the FireStorm Hi Carb from you, the pattern changed as I got towards the edge and the firestorm explosions formed more on the edge, which was totally awesome!!

Unless I'm mistaken, Salty's cimiter is Devin's feather pattern. Both are pretty nice patterns.

I like ladder and Snakeskin the best! Maybe even the Reptilian as my favorites.... Looks like barbed wire to me... Very nice... It took me quite a while to make up my mind! I think the handle was what broke the tie...

I just love burl!
