    Yeah no problem but you've got to let me know if it sucks more or less - I need me some feedback.

    Martell 240mm Damascus Gyuto

    Here is Sean's 240mm Martell 1084fg/15n20 damascus gyuto.

    This steel was made special for us by a talented young forger from upstate NY; Dan Seaver of PureDamascus.com. The steel was wonderful to work with and provided just the look I was after. I'm sure that I'll be ordering more of this fine steel from from Dan in the near future.

    The handle is comprised of African Blackwood bolsters (supplied by BurlSource), dyed Redwood Burl (supplied by the customer - acquired through Arizona Ironwood), copper pins, and double G10 liners.

    The tang on this knife is all damascus although it will not give up the looks right now. I'm sure this hidden feature will reveal itself to the user over time.

    Things that don't come through in the pictures is the metallic flash and movement of the burl character in the redwood (it's simply fantastic!) and the 3D movements of the patterning in blade (needs a video to see this!).

    To date this is the most expensive, complex, and well detailed knife that I've done and I'm actually (for once) quite pleased with the results. I hope that Sean will like it as much (or more hopefully) and that he gets a lot of enjoyment from using it over the years.

    Sean, thanks for the opportunity to push my limits.

    Dave

    Damn, Dave! That looks like a user! I'd be proud to beat up some food with that thing.

    The only 2 things that would make it better are: 1-if it were a 270, 2-if it were mine!!!

    excellent work Dave.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
