Wow... Every time you post a knife I think to myself, what could be possibly next? Well, you never fail at surprising me, your taste is impeccable, beautiful knife Scott. Mario, your work is quite impressive!
The heck. I am seriously in love with that handle. Works amazing with that damascus.
Snakewood and mammoth...Mario you must be a glutton for punishment.
Looks great, cut anything with it yet?

Beautiful job Mario
Very nice! How did they collaborate on this knife?Who did what?
my guess is Mario got some damn nice DT steel and made a damn nice knife out of it.

Devin was kind enough to gift me my choice of bar at the Vegas show. Mario cut it, Devin heat treated it, Mario ground it, finished it and made the handle.
Haven't sharpened it yet. I think it's AEB-L and L6? Twist pattern.
So the bar you got from DT already had the twist pattern,or does that come out during the HT,grinding,finishing?
