Heres a damascus I did.

Recommended Posts

This is the first Damascus I've ever done. I've seen a lot better though. I made everything but, the blade.

I like it. But did the blade shrink on you? lol Sorry, I'm just wacky tonight. 

Seriously though, seems a bit short on the blade length to me. Bet it would look awesome with a long blade. But I'm not doing them, so my opinions don't matter, and I couldn't do what you did either.

The blade blank had kind of a short turned up point. I agree, the handle is a little longer than blade.

Kits like these are a great gateway into showing yourself that you can actually complete a project like this.  Nice work.

The first knife I did was with hand files and I jig I made, sandpaper, a torch and a rare earth magnet.  It gave me the confidence to know I could it.

I doubt it'll be your last knife.

Re-read last night's post. Man, I sounded like a jerk. Please let that slide. 

I can appreciate what you did, and putting it out for others to see...that takes guts.

Just because I wasn't bowled over by it wasn't a reason for me to disparage your efforts. Hell I can't do it. 

 

Just because it didn't meet my likes was no reason to put it the way I did. figured I'd do my apology here rather than in a pm. I might learn to think before typing.

Merry Christmas to you.

Its my 3rd so far. I've done one from D2 steel that I shaped out and another that a friend gave me a blade that he ordered.

No problem, I admit it does look a little funny, The tang was a little long and I started to take some off the tang and make it a little more balanced to the blade. But, I went ahead and made the Teak handles and proceeded. Merry Christmas.

Update. I gave the knife to my sister for Christmas, and she showed it to some friends. Two of them want one just like it. I'm not really in the mood right now to make anything soon. I told her give me a week or two and I'll get in the mood.
