I spent all my summers as a youth, at the countryside, right next to a river.
So obviously I devoted a lot of my time casting lures with a spinning reel.
Pike and bass the name of the game.
I am ashamed, that I never thought of doing this before.

It's böhler "leuku" and uddeholm "crane"
30ish layers, only some showing.
Heat treated and tempered.
Half of the front side has the temper colour still showing, to mimic "belly and back"
Slight distal taper from middle towards both ends, bevels only on the frontside.

The backside has hammer finish for superior accented reflection action.

I got to try it for 45 min yesterday.
Pike just love it!
I got 2 and one flashed a stomack, no pics, they were too small, I let them live.
The curvy shape and slightly offset hook, makes it swim and flow, ohh so, gracefully.

Isa 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.Lu 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Another potential idea of what to do with all those little bits of Damascus......

Gotta love it! I bet those shiny bits flash the light and attract Pike big time.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Fantastic! Love the idea and execution. I've never really been one for fishing, but the last few months have really wanted to get me out there! Thanks for the inspiration B)
