    You know I looked at it more closely and now I am not so sure it isn't a mustard patina rather than a dammy pattern (I bought it used after all)! Anyway here are some pics, not great however, apologiesAttachment 19229Attachment 19230

    In this case, two reasons.

    First, it is pretty.

    Second, I don't want to go carbon steel since I am not confident in my sharpening abilities. I live in NYC, so I can get my knives sharpened well when I need to, but I'd rather limit that to once in a while. If you guys think that the carbon steel is significantly better, then I might consider going that route.

    It is pretty, and if you're looking for a trophy knife it's quite pristine. For the money your willing to spend, you could almost get a custom From Del Ealy. But damascus isn't going to hold an edge anly longer that any other knife.

    Carbon is easier to sharpen, typically takes a keener edge and holds it longer, just requires more maintenence. Above all though, if you're investing this much in a knife, I suggest you considering purchasing your own stones and learning to sharpen yourself.
