    They look much better than my poor photog skills show! The Ironwood on these is the best I've used, the highest grade and it just WAY better than the pics show. Plus there's the great sheaths that my wife made!

    I got lots more of that Damascus - for some reason I've only made one knife with it.

    But heck yea, it could get "lost in the mail"! :p

    It's pretty much like O1, and I heat treat it just like O1. You want Ironwood, because I'll have to get some good stuff. I have some, but it's lower grade stuff. Just lemme know.

    I also have some beautiful stabilized woods like spalted maple burl, thurya burl, snakewood and CA. buckeye burl. I think a darker wood like the thurya or snakewood would be killer with the Damascus. o_O

    Definitely a darker wood Valkman, definitely a darker wood.

    I hear snakewood is really neat - we'll have to find out! Man I miss the smiley of the guy with the knife and fork, waiting. I used that more than any other!

    I didn't think the Damascus was THAT great until I took the pics - for some reason it showed up really nice. I'll make Melbo one with Snakewood and that should be awesome!
