Feather Damascus - Which way should the feather point ?


Recommended Posts

This has been bothering me for some time so I would like to get some opinions on this.

I always make my feather point towards the tip on the blade but everyone else seems to point it towards the handle.

It's entirely up to you, and I've done both. 

IMO they both look good, but (also IMO) it looks a little more like you're holding a feather with it pointing toward the handle, as you say.

That is one beautiful knife there! I've been wanting to try feather Damascus next and if it comes out even 1/2 as good looking as yours I will be a happy man!

I've always been of the opinion that the handle is considered the shaft of the feather like John N's. But truthfully its up to the smith. Your knife looks like its got some wicked kinda power shooting from the handle to the point which is very cool looking lol.
