Thank you for posting this!

I handled this knife, while visiting Randy, and it honestly looks virtually perfect. I was amazed at the workmanship on this knife. Randy has a slightly different handle shape and I was so impressed that we mimicked it with my rehandle.

This thing is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

I'm not normally one for fancy Damascus, being an ODC guy, but WOW! This almost makes me change my stance on Damascus. :surrendar: That handle looks great. You did a great job Lefty

Thanks guys!!!! This baby is just about as perfect as any knife I have made. Seems to have the IT factor, and just feels so right to me!! I may shed a tear as I send his one on to my client. lol


Lefty drooled alot on this knife when he Handled it. :cool2: What I mean is.. I made this knife, and he handled it.. Like, fondled it. Not handled it like installed the handles. :D

I get it now, fondled, good choice of a word, lol. Like I just said, not many Damascus knives do it for me, but this one is doing something to me...

Keep that up, and I'm never sending the Davis gyuto back! Haha

This one really is a beauty. The new owner is a lucky SOB!

Very cool. I very much appreciate the beauty of damascus blades but for me it is often that step that takes it from 'user' to 'collector' level, and I don't see myself as a collector. But this one here could weaken my resolve :)
