    These profiles look great, Mike. What else can you tell us about these blades? I'm afraid I won't be much use on the handle materials though, lol. What's the long block on the right and what color is it?

    Ok here we go. The 180 is Delberts lizard pattern, in O1/L6/Pure Nickel. It is at 2.3 mm at the spine. It has a partial grind to a zero edge. Both should be in the 61rc range. The 150 is made from Deker's basketweave, is 1084/15N20, ground very similar to the first. The long block is Buckeye Burl..It is pretty much gray with black streaks. None of the usual yellows associated with the buckeye.

    That lizard damascus is super cool - I never saw that before - Delbert's holding out on us.

    I'm pretty sure he had a piece of it at ECG.

    The only problem with that stuff is the pure nickel. In my experience, it really doesn't hold up anywhere near as well as steel does.

    I'd love to see a made out of it.

    I already have the redwood cut for it lol. The 150 is getting maple burl, copper and blackwood. I have a special "dark" handle in mind for the other 180...I iwll show them off later tonight.
