Basically, I feel if I pay to be a “basic” member, I should be able to share reasonable size photos, straight from my phone, without “gold” or “platinum” level. Especially when so many other services provide free membership and unlimited photos at full res. Anyways.....just my viewpoint. I will look into it again.

I’ve got a Pj 31 with gold hardware on order. I’ve got Damascus in wood and micarta but something about the plain with Damascus is hands down my favorite.
When I ordered the Pj above, I had made my mind up before I received it that it was going to be a worker. I got the delivery notification, went to the shop and picked it up at lunch, put it in my pocket and went straight back to work with it. I had read a few of kidcongo posts about working Damascus beforehand.
Now if only CRK would answer my prayers and put an Inkosi/Damascus in production....
I could definitely get on board with thatThe handle and the blade match so well that it looks super sharp...it pairs so well that it looks almost like the blade and handle finishes were matched with the very intent of them complimenting each other as they wear.
My prayer is an Insingo in damascus
Just me personally I can’t tell much difference. I don’t think the Damascus is any less in any department tho. I’ve put mine thru the paces and can’t tell much difference. I do rotate often and cutting tasks and usage vary from day to day so it’s hard for me to get a true comparison.Great pics, and thanks for the update. Man that looks great!
For those of you that have a Damascus blade AND a regular blade, do you notice ANY difference in the way they cut, or hold an edge?
I'm just wondering if there is a difference in actual felt performance?
I agree that the edge holding on the Damascus blades seems a tiny bit better than my older 58HRC-era S35 Sebenzas. The newer, harder S35 Sebenza blades may exceed the Damascus for edge retention.If anything my Damascus blades SEEM to stay sharp longer than Bg42/S30-35. I wonder if the layers in the Damascus give the blade a little more aggressive edge than the plain steel?
