    That Damascus knife is fucking beautiful. You should try out for Forged in fire.

    I love that show.

    Thanks! Love that show but I am not at the level of making my own Damascus yet. Gas forge is one of the next things on my list. For now I buy expensive billets from Alabama Damasus, arguably the best in the US.

    Give it to Sherb. He will know what to do with it. Slice the bananas for a PB and nanner samich. Marines are experts with knives.

    Amazing work! Curious how you sharpen your knives. Do you use any of the contraptions or just a stone?

    I've done three folding knives. Last year I purchased a DVD and learned how to make auto-assist folders. Latest folder is a large auto-assist and works really well. I'm still in the process of embellishing the handle scales and spine. I don't think I'll do many more folders until I can get my mittens on a CNC or milling machine. Otherwise, it's buying parts instead of manufacturing my own.

    I use this system and it is amazing: https://wickededgeusa.com/
    Have all stone sets from #50 diamond thru #1600 ceramic. Only cons are that it is expensive, has a learning curve, and is not great for recurve style blades (they offer a rounded stone set for recurves but I have not tried it). Also not good for extremely large or extremely small knives. I don't think that any single "sharpening system" can do it all but for most knives it is the king of sharpeners in my opinion. I can achieve razor sharp edges with a mirror finish. I use a digital Angle Cube to dial-in precise angles.

    Amazing.

    As always, I'm totally jealous of anybody with artistic talent.

    I think anyone can do it if they set their mind on it.
