    History:
    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)...

    Harald does fantastic work. What can he possibly do to top this?

    Beautifuly clean work and a great final product. This material is not easy to work with and the metal spacer adds another level to it, something to aspire to.

    Thanks for your kind words, guys. The Mammoth molar was well stabilized but still a menace to work with. I used a tungsten carbide drill bit to drill the hole and diamond dentist drill bits to shape the hollow. External shape was done using diamond files and aluminum oxide sanding paper meant for ceramic tiles. The musk ox horn is mortized all the way through the ferrule and spacer.

    Hoss, that blade is some of the most impressive forge work I have ever seen in my life! I am happy that you like the handle on it and I hope to be able to afford one of your blades myself one day.

    There was a question about the spacer. I use a silver/ pewter mix that polishes well, is food safe and is pretty soft and thus easy on the sanding paper. Also it doesn't heat up as much as nickel silver making it easier on the surrounding materials when grinding. The black liners are just regular vulcanized paper to pick up any microscopic movement in the musk.
