    Thanks Andrew, yes its my own damascus. Quite a fun mission a feather pattern. Making a billet to 3000 odd layers and then splitting it down the middle, to get the dragging in the layers, then weld it back together again. Fun stuff.

    Thanks very much for the comments Guys. Here is a video of the knife doing some cutting. Excuse my poor technique.
    Also I reshaped the tip slightly making it more pointy.
