    I've been thinking, and instead of just making a prototype from a piece of san mai I already have, I'm gonna make the first damascus ingot for the first set of knives and make the proto from the very same metal, while documenting the entire process.

    This way you can check not only how the knives will turn out, but also the exact process each knife will take to get finished :)

    I think it'll be a good knifemaking thread!

    Well, I started to make the prototype :D

    I'm taking pics, so I'll make a thread with those in a few weeks :)

    I'll take #8 if it's still available. So are you still planning on Mokume bolsters? If so, make mine #8 with Mokume!
    Thanks! CWL

    Ariel's finishing some last delayed orders and making damascus bars that will use for later knives. One of these bars is what will become the prototype, that it's making will be documented step by step :)

    Folks,

    I apologize for the delays in this project. I've been really busy finishing up past orders (you'll see what I mean in a few when I post my latest works :D)

    To prevent further delays on this I'm making the prototype of a newly made damascus sheet, but I'm not documenting the making steps at this time.

    This will allow me to present a finished proto by the end of next week/begining of the other one.

    I will document the entire process when I make the first one, so everybody will be able to see how their knives are going to be made :)

    Here's the cut profile for the proto, more pics as soon as I finish it!

    Looks great!

    By any chance, when we buy one of these, can we use your shipping discount on multiple knives option? I think there is another one from your site I want. :)

    It's a different blank than the one I've showed previously, as I've cutted 3 of them already.
