    Thanks everybody! I was hoping to get a different result with the finish other than the typical light/dark contrast or full polish that seems to be the normal "Damascus" look. My goal was to get a bright polished finish, yet maintain contrast, a bit of a PITA. I did a hunter a few years ago using a similar construction, that had a bright edge, but dull sides. Ok for a hunter, but this seems a better solution for a kitchen knife.

    This one will wear some of Devins raindrop monument for bolsters, liners of some sort, stabilized redwood scales, and I will attempt my first redwood saya. Heck, it will be my first saya period!

    Stay tuned!
