    It's a nice way to get us to mentally justify buying more knives (they are all so different -- right?)

    k.

    Nice knives with a good clean look to them, I like. The thing that I find funny is that I just got in some olive wood I plan to use for knives in the future

    Do you think it would be possible to forge together multiple layers of damascus (similar to cladding a core) so that the grind exposes different layers of Damascus as through the height of the blade. Might be interesting?

    Yes it would, and that was part of my inspiration for the crazy quilt damascus, an I do think it would be interesting.

    I could do this as well I have a gray kunz style spoon in the works, if I wind up with enouh material for one of these I might give it a try.

    OK what do you guys think of the wider style, like the sandwich spreader style. I have always wanted one of those. Maybe even with a WA-style handle.

    This is great lets keep it going.

    I was thinking about a cake server thingie in damascus for my Mom who is an avid baker. But when I dropped hints, she was not interested or did not see what that might be good for... Oh well, but I still like the idea.

    I still think a measuring spoon for espresso would be nice as would be a tamper but that might be using up too much material to be affordable. A long, slim bar spoon for mixing drinks could be nice.

    Something that may be totally old fashioned in the times of the kindle: could the damascus be rolled/hammered out ultra-thin and be cut into book marks? I am using a nice and very thin sanded piece of 1x6" piece of koa as a book mark, I think damascus would be cool also. Maybe a use for leftover pieces?
