Very nice knife Joshua

It got me thinking, there's so much utility in a small blade like that.  Comes time to sell it, the price might seem high "for such a small blade"

That's why it needs to be in beautiful damascus like that B)

Nice one Joshua.  Did you ladder the W's?  

Yes and no. I accordion cut my W patterns. The wider, more open areas are the bottoms of the V-notches.

Ahh, that makes more sense!  I was trying to work out in my head how laddering would result in such clear Ws on the denser sections, and it didn't compute.

Great knife :)

I sell both fairly regularly. It's the perfect size for most hunters it seems.

Mono steel blade: $250 USD. Damascus blade: $450 USD Frame handles: add $50-150 USD depending on frame type & embellishments.

Probably selling them way too cheap.

Clean! And with an awesome pattern too. I agree on the size, smaller is almost always more handy for hunting purposes. 

I think your prices are reasonable. They are similar to my own.

Just about fell of my chair reading that, this weekend I got US$125 for a cleaver that was a shit-tonne of work......not much market here and the economy is down.

I had a pretty bad experience recently getting some laser engraving done at a goldsmith, misunderstanding about price.

I've gladly been paying him 4x as much as the previous guy to do my makers mark.  The client wanted additional engraving that was quite expensive and for his account, problem was the price I quoted him for both sides was the price of one engraving.

I literally begged because if I'd paid full price I made the cleaver for free in effect.

I was upset about this and I realized the big problem was I'm too cheap.

Joshua, either is a nice Kith. Personally, I lean toward a fixed blade for EDC when working permits. But I’ve been know to carry mine even to an office environment in my PC bag. My ribbon burner is down and unless I can fix my entry won’t be Damascus. Most likely in the Puukko or friction folder category.
