    If that's white 2, you got a SWEET knife! If it's VG10, you still got a sweet knife...I'm just partial to carbon.

    Nice. White steel is a good thing--doesn't hold an edge as long as Blue #2, but it is easier to sharpen. Great for a blade early in your j-knife experience!

    Thanks guys! I wonder, why are some here not so interested in damascus knives? Does it affect sharpness?

    The Damascus cladding is a matter of looks and preference. Some like it, some folks really love it, and for others it's a non-factor. It doesn't have any effect on the edge, cutting performance, or "sharpenability".

    Also, there is a difference between a damascus knife, and a damascus cladded knife. You will find people way more interested in the first; not so much in the second.

    Ok, I did not know this. There's a lot to learn for me, I realize.
