Here is a little sneak peak at what's been going on in Devin's shop recently. We should be getting these damascus beauties in the store in about a month.

Most of these are going to be 240mm wa-gyutos. They will have the same basic shape as the ITK ones he makes. At least that's what I think.

Devin's doing a variety of steel combinations and patterns as well as using different handle woods so each one will be unique. This last picture is a block of layered steel pieces he puts together and then welds a bar to it so he can stick it into the forge. Then, he pulls out the red hot piece and hammers it out into a long piece.

Nice, these should be very well received. Devin and Jon work like crazy and produce phenominal knives.

I can't wait to see the final product. I would love to have a DT piece. I am really a 270 kinda guy though and it constantly irks me that there is a much better availability for 240's. Maybe I'll bend this time though. Devin's work is excellent.

Once the steel has a handle welded on it's heated up in this forge.
