    While burkecutlery (Eamon) is very talented, that's the end result of a collaboration between damascus maker David Lisch and of an ABS master smith, Michael Rader.

    Not a correction at all, just a finger in the right direction if you want one by Mr. Rader.
    That pattern is called 'feather' and it is pretty popular.

Hope to find something soon!

    As far as I am aware, there are no mass-produced American made damascus knives - all are made by custom knife makers. The prices for these knives will be quite a bit more than Cutco. Look to be spending at least $450-500 for a chef's knife (gyuto), and $300-350 for a small utillity/paring knife.

    I'll add some custom makers to the four that G-rat mentioned.

    Bill Burke (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/me...476-Bill-Burke) - Bill makes his own carbon damascus. See more of his work at The Epicurean Edge (http://www.epicedge.com/shopdisplayp...ll%2C+M%2ES%2E)

    Mario Ingoglia (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/me...hp/416-RRLOVER) - Mario uses Devin Thomas stainless damascus.

    Marko Tsourkan (http://www.tsourkanknives.com) - Marko uses Devin Thomas carbon damascus.

    Stephan Fowler (http://fowlerblades.com/) - Stephan makes his own carbon damascus.

    Adam Marr (http://marrknives.com/) - Adam uses Devin Thomas stainless damascus.

    Murray Carter (http://www.cartercutlery.com/japanes...itchen-cutlery) - Murray makes his own carbon damascus.

    Bob Kramer (http://www.kramerknives.com/home.htm) - Bob makes his own carbon damascus.

    Good luck in your quest!

    Rick

    Will, or any of the makers can do a high contrast or a more muted damascus pattern.

    Many of the knives are straight damascus, while some are damascus clad, meaning there is a core steel, surrounded by a damascus steel jacket.

    All the makers I have communicated with have been great to talk to.

    I had found only 1 company that did damascus as a mass production. They had a Japanese company make them for them. They no longer sell that line, just because they are wanting to go with a straight made in america.

    HA! I WISH I made knives like that!!! Texas is too dang hot for forging. Even Jim Bowie had his knife made by a blacksmith in Arkansas.

    No, those were:
    Devin Thomas
    HHH Knives
    Delbert Ealy
    Michael Rader

    In that order.
