    There are some stunning knives in this month's offering!

    I wonder what kind of things they will be doing when my time is called....if I remember correctly it is for Sept of next year. Such a long wait, the lottery is a great monthly offering.

    Come on Panda - not everyone can blend Damascus with "Hello Kitty" ... boggles the mind to think of a bright pink BB Santoku Damascus with a cute Hello Kitty figurine carved out of antler or pine cone ....

    Thank you Dave, I really appreciate it. We're happy to be here and would be much less knowledgeable about knives and what to strive for in our craft without you guys!

    Well, you can't please everybody ;-)

    Frankly, David and I resisted 'damascus' steel for a long long time. We're happy to offer it as an option now, largely in response to customer requests and as a way to broaden the pallet of artistic choices, but we are still loving differentially tempered monosteel for its austerity and pure functionality.

    Do you guys know roughly what the granite saw steel that you use is, or what it is like? How does it compare to 52100 in your use of both? Thanks.
