    I would love to own that piece; the mosaic pins very much add to the beauty of the damascus and the lovely scales. What type of wood is that?

    Also interesting is the cord-wrapped piece in damascus viewable in the 1st and 3rd picture.

    What beautiful little knives... That first one is so near perfect for 99.99% of what a knife should ever be asked to do...

    Your french connection will be pleased!

    Very smart. What is the overall length of those blades?

    Do you buy your damascas or is it self made?

    Looks really great!

    Can that be applied to a handgun?

    Nice work Jim. Good looking knife design. Brad Vice makes nice damascus. The maple burl makes a pretty handle.

    JoeMal,

    That's not a surface treatment. That is the steel. It is a layered pattern welded steel. The layers are due to the different etch resistance of the different steels after being etched to reveal the pattern. If you want a damascus slide for a handgun Caspian arms would be happy to oblige.

    If this thread seems a little crazy, it's because I merged the two "Another day at the office" threads. I tried to put everything back where it belongs . . . .

    I have watched Damascus steel in the making at a knife factory in Jacksonville, Alabama, back in 1989. Very interesting. Hot, loud and lots of tons pounding the lowcarbon and highcarbon steels together. I think that was the type of steel used.
