    High end, Composite damascus Knife Sets.

    Planning some projects for Early 2014.
    I have this one worked out in my head, it was a help to draw the patterns on paper.
    ......the twisty bits are not drawn exactly as would be but you get the idea....







    These will consist of a laddered san mai piece as an edge weld. The core will be my super damascus mix @ 63hrc, the welds will be very fine and cross the edge, Perpendicular to the ladder.
    Then we have a basket weave in 01/15n20,cs70 and pure nickel. Then several bars of high contrast twist, making up a turkish section to the spine.

    I figure these will involve making 5 or six different billets of damascus, which will be forged out and combined for each knife. Quite a juggling act

    The geometry that will really suit these blades I think is a double bevel rather than fully convex faces. It will be subtly hollow grinding above the bevels, so the spine will be thick but will cut very well due to the geometry.

    I hope there will be a custom knife block, made up in mosaic wood pieces to match the damascus.

    Its all much easier to draw than to make though

    I am absolutely confident that this will be a stunning proof of your craftsmanship. To perfectly honest, I am leaning more toward the cleaner designs - probably saw too much Bauhaus stuff in my youth - so it might be a bit busy for my personal taste. But I am sure people fill fight over these.

    The biggest problem with what you are proposing is that I won't be able to afford it!

    Really nice idea, but I'm afraid my wallet's too small for this...
