I dunno of you want to put a lot of time into this blade and find out it's soft like the other one. That one looks like it would need a whole re grind on it, which will take a long time on the stones. Can you get a refund?
    no I bought this back in Feb. This is probably a drawer queen. Next damascus I buy prob will be a billet from a maker in the us.

    Typically these will not hold an edge because they can not be hardened, so you can probably reshape the face of the blade with a file.

    Got an Atoma plate? DMT XXC? Harbor Freight Story nearby(a 1x30 belt sander is like $40).

    Do you have much use for a Western Deba? Looks like it would save you a lot of bother and time if you just used your knife for that

    Ty for all the feed back. The blade in the pic. that everyone was asking about I was using to set the focus, for the primary knife. It was the first damascus I bought off of e-bay. It is a dagger that needs to have a handle put on.

    I have thinned this down, and it needs more. When I bought a 600 stone I didn't think I would need a lower one. I have yet to put a edge on this yet, but will do soon. It looks really rough atm. Ty all for your help and suggestions.

    My friend took another knife to do a saya for before doing a larger one. Tanaka santoku I bought quite a while ago that doesn't fit in my knife carrier.

    Will post pic's soon
