  1. Hello Everyone. I would like an experienced opinion on what is wrong with this blade. I recently purchased a large Damascus steel knife, but upon receiving the knife I noticed it had a cavity on the edge of the blade. The seller insists that this is normal and was intended by the blade smith. He says it is an "intentional groove". Why would anyone put a groove into the edge of a blade?? I feel like it is a mistake ,most likely from the forging of the damascus, and the seller should admit it as such. Why would anyone put a groove into the edge of a blade?? Thank you for your input.
  2. Hello everyone. As I wrote earlier, this one is the cuter brother of my "Rainbow in the dark". Same billet, same construction, different handle materials. And blade design. I don't have the specs because it's long gone but it's somehow similar in size the his brother. I didn't make the pouch, my friend Francesco Nova from Rome, Italy, did. This was my first international job, it went to a friend and good customer in Belgium. I hope you, guys, enjoy.
  3. Hello everyone, This is a little folder I made a while ago... The blade is 3 bars, 2 of which being twisted "W" pattern 1070 and pure nickel and the cutting edge being regular twisted pattern, O2 and 15N20. The mechanism is back lock with the spring being one solid piece with the back, which is fully fileworked (inside too). The back/spring is 5160, bail in Titanium, all pins are Titanium, damascus bolsters, snakewood scales (cut offs from a baroque violin bow blank), 304 liners. Leather box hand tooled and stitched, it also works as stand by a small notch in one side of the box.
