    That profile is very nice, and the ebony is beautiful.

    One question though, what type of etching do you do for stainless damascus?

    You’re speaking my language now. Can I be a pest and ask what it’s doing 5mm and 10mm behind the edge?

    Unless your IG is your main sale outlet, than there should be no issue posting a link here. Otherwise just let us know your IG name. That is definitely OK.
