    Interesting comparison, but I wonder what grade their stainless is?

    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

It can be easier to sharpen no question, as for retaining a sharper edge I would disagree when comparing with modern stainless powder steels such as RWL34. The early stainless such as 440 or 420 certainly didn't take as good an edge as carbon steel, but things have moved on. Knives don't have to be cheap to be used, I believe the vast majority of knives I have made are being used by their owners, they aren't made to be ornaments! I know one stalker who is using a £300+ knife of mine in the field and it doesn't get an easy life.

    Made for work, stainless Damasteel blade.



    Oh my, and there was me thinking I had enough knives already!

    Thanks. The materials for it were eye wateringly expensive, in comparison to the usual fare.

    I am not surprised. That Damascus steel is rather splendid, and the burl is ďnot badĒ either.
    Don't take my silence for agreement. I've just realised you're too stupid to argue with.

    If it's a case of disclosing trade secrets then please don't answer how it's done, but can I ask if the red liner is comprised of a single piece or two? The resolution on my laptop is not good enough to really see.

    I just love the way the liner goes not just between the tang and the scales, but then also between the scales and the bolster.

    First class.

    Itís two pieces, the join can be seen on high res but in real life itís quite hard to spot!

    Yes it was a commission.

    I am making some folders, but they are just prototypes at the moment. Getting to a high enough standard is always the aim.

    Youíre right. And Desert Ironwood burl exhibition grade is getting quite expensive!

    For £7 itís sharp enough. Not concentrating while cutting a few things I took a proper nick out of my finger.

    Iíll be more careful next time

    That Damascus knife is a serious work of art. Absolutely stunning!
