As many of you know I am a huge fan of Mr Devin Thomas work, not only is pure and elegant damscus, but also his profile and geometry of his knives. I have long admired his work, and sent like 1000 pms and mails to the man. Luckly for Mr Devin Thomas I don't live in USA, or else I might show up at his door or called like 5 times a day. I hope however to personally meet the man himself. Anyway I managed to get hold of this blade, and got it to Oslo.
Harald Andersen took this from USA to Oslo, and when we sat down to see the work, we was stunned about the beauty of this blade. Its possible the perfect blade, and we agreed about Harald doing a handle out of this world. After long talks, Harald suggested a one piece musk ox wa, and I was thrilled about it. We spent hours talking about different ferrules until Harald found the Mammoth Jaw and was ready to go. I know he spent like 20+ hours making this handle, so he sure got a story to tell himself.
I barely used the knife, but it feels really well in my hand. Done some carrots, tomatoes and other vegetables, and it felt great. More resistant to clean off than my mono steel, but I guess thats the damascus. I will post a review when Ive used it for a while. And yeah, it was a gift for my girl (lol, right)...
