Wild Turkey "Damascus"

Blade Length: 3 1/8"
Blade Material: 16 layer polished VG-1 clad Damascus steel
Handle Material: Black pakka wood

Only 250 of these were made

I also experienced a "first" for me today. I injured myself a bit on the 1993-2. Nope, not a cut. Its 10 degrees here. I grabbed the package from the mailbox, opened it, unboxed the knife...and stuck my finger tip to the frozen blade! I know I should have just let it warm up, but my reaction was to jerk my finger away. Nice little bit of finger pad stayed behind!

Well, I certainly hope you cleaned all the blood & skin off the blade when you got unstuck!
Oh, never mind.

I meant to say, I hope you are O.K.! :D

Very nice knives BTW!!

I really like the first one. It almost reminds me of a very sleek version of a Buck 500.
