    Since CRK introduced Damasteel with the Inkosis and Impinda at Blade Show I thought it would be cool to share some pics. Maybe as/if they introduce more patterns we can really see where CRK takes it.

    Like most that are out there, this one is Bjorkmans Twist, but I know at least a few others are out there. I also emailed CRK and got some cool tidbits of information from Matt. The Bjorkmans Twist is made with DS93X steel which is composed of RWL34 and PMC27 and should perform closely to the former. It's heat treated to 60-61RC and is supposed to be more corrosion resistant than CRK's other damascus. I believe Tim is going to share more information in the future.

    They just posted the Blade leftovers on the CRK page and they are all gone already. Had 15 smalls left I think I read. Allgone now. Apparently, only a few of us at Blade wanted smalls.

    House of Blade has a large plain blade, but they want the price of a damascus one!

    They have a small Damasteel Inkosi and yes it's pricey. They had a large also but it sold a couple hours ago.

    Yup, that one is particularly expensive. Even so, I'm sure it'll sell eventually.

    Thanks for the offer but it sounds like it might be priced way out of my budget haha
