    Hello from PA

    Hey folks, my name is Rob but everybody calls me Deker. I made my first knife about 5 years ago and my production has been low, but I keep at it when I can. Recently I've been making more damascus than knives, but I'm hoping to shift back the other direction for a bit soon.

    Thanks for the new forum Dave, like I needed someplace else to spend my time that's not in the shop

    Hi, Deker.

    Can you post any pics of your knives and damascus? There's never enough of them!

    Thanks for the welcome wagon guys! Butch is actually about 10 minutes from me, so I get to see a lot of stuff before you guys do

    I haven't been making many knives recently, so I'll trot out some old pictures from the archives.

    First was from my very first billet of Damascus.



    Something a little different I did with some Gemsbok horn.



    A bowie I did a while back



    I've got a website where I discuss the way I go about making my damascus for anybody who wants to learn about the process. I'm a little behind in my adding info to the site, but I hope to get back on adding content soon.

    See you guys around the forum!
