    That is a beautiful knife. The pattern in the blade almost looks similar to the grain of a pipe.

    Does he use it or save as part of a collection?

    Capt that was a billet he bought from Alabama , 5 different steel layers forged and pressed 5 times, he just got the equipment to make his own from cable, that was just a little work knife that he heat treated, tempered, acid eched and polished, The old cajun

    That knife puts my wallmart brand knife to shame! I don't know enough about knifes to know if that knife is good but it looks like quality.

    Damascus steel is a favourite of mine.

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    My son's a chef and the knife he salivates over is hand made, sells in the 4 figures, and there's a long waiting list. There's money in knives, if you know what you're doing.

    That is a very good looking knife. I would love to someday own more knives. Damascus steel is one of my favorite metals for a knife.

    Very nice. Good luck to him. The PKA has their show here in Denver every August. Just another black hole for my money!

    some guy here in Ajax, Ontario, Canada.

    There hand made but he does not sharpen them and he is a terrible ebay seller to be honest but the knives look great and once sharpened are pretty awesome given you keep it lubricated.
