    This ain't your momma's damascus cladding

    Used my Ealy tonight at work during service, which includes slicing mid-rare (usually) duck breast to order. Afterwards I noticed my edge bevels had patina'd and revealed the damascus pattern all the way to the edge.

    No, you were right, they are solid damascus. I just worded it kinda vaguely. Not being your mom's damascus cladding was meant to imply they were solid damascus.

    That's really great looking! This has to be one of the coolest knives I've held.

    The patina on the edge bevels? Not at all. How does the damascus cut compared to straight steel? Not sure. I wouldn't be able to notice the difference in a blind test between it and any other high quality steel. Plus the steels used and Del's heat treat also affect how it cuts. 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.
