    Del can correct me, but I believe it is an 01/L6 mix.

It take a very nice edge and holds it quite well, but I am sure Del's straight steel knives are no different. Supposedly a damascus cutting edge will get "toothy" as you use it because the different steels wear at different rates. I have not really noticed this, but I probably sharpen too often to let it develop any sort of tooth.
    The wear resistant qualities of O-1 and L-6 are similar, but not exactly the same, however with the passion that you guys have for sharp, you will never notice the toothiness effect, because you guys would sharpen before you get to that point, Just as Johnny said above

    With a lighter or no etch, this effect would develop along the entire blade. I think it's quite attractive.

    Interesting images - but I guess that's pretty normal due to the methods of production.
