I stumbled upon this item today: damascus hedge shears/clippers from the Tanaka family.

Ok, show of hands, how many would buy these clippers? There is a place in Berlin that offers them for 109 Euro, and I think you can special order them through JWW.

:begging: Might add some joy to bush trimming time, but that is a job I push through and don't really enjoy, even with an electric hedgetrimmer - otherwise I am going to need a damascus wheelbarrow shovel and rake too. Then, I will have to replace the hood of my john deere tractor with a damascus hood......

Randy Jr. is going to be a busy guy!!!

This is a perfect example of why I refuse to add any damascus pieces to my collection. Once you start, where do you stop? There is no end!

Those seem nice, but the crappy handles really should be replaced with some nice burled wood...

^^ ...and Randy and Randy Jr. haven't even rolled out the hand-hammered copper pots and pans with the stainless steel damascus interior liners yet!

One day, I want to own a damascus shovel with a burl handle and copper fittings.


Are those clippers White #1? I won't buy them if they aren't. :disdain:

Not to mention - I haven't heard anything about that Damascus Wok they were working on...

I once had a damascus hedge, but the neighbor's dog kept peeing on it and it finally died.

(Sorry, I don't know what makes me do these things. :O )

I am not surprised Tanaka makes them. I have read he also makes carpenter tools. Now I am sure there are some board makers that would love some damascus carpenter tools here on the forum.:2cents::biggrin:
