First damascus knife

Recommended Posts

Over the years I've used other folks' Damascus steel quite a few times.  This blade is the first one from my own Damascus.  This is 21 layers of Aldo's original 1084 and some 15n20.  The guard is wrought iron wagon rim that belonged to my great great grandfather, George Kromer.  The handle is curly maple.  Overall length is around 12 inches.  It was built with a threaded rod through the handle, fastened with a corby head that was then covered with a Texas mosaic pin. I'll have it on my table for the Silver Spur show in Abilene Feb 24/25.  Although this is a regular "gun show", we've worked with Kim the promoter and will have around 10 knifemakers from the Texas Knifemakers' Guild there, as well as Terry Dunn with three tables of stabilized wood handle material of the highest grade.  We'll also have educational seminars at 1:00 both days.

Elegant lines; I'm glad you resisted the urge to put a wild handle on it as its the simple grace looks very nice together.

I don't have that urge very often, lol.  I have a nice piece of 160 layer random that's scheduled for a frame handle, Bump/Quesenberry/Hanson style.  Lines will be clean though. Stainless fittings and black camel bone, I'm thinking.
