One of the most beautiful mosaic damascus knives I've ever seen was at this year's Wolverine Custom Knife Show here in Michigan. Made by a gentleman by the name of Tim Zowada. The picture at http://www.unnet.com/tzowada/Knives.html doesn't do it justice. Tim was warm, sincere, patient with questions, willing to share tips and "secrets", humble, and his work was simply exceptional. This was the knife that turned me on to the beauty of damascus, and now I'm trying to figure out a way to start a "slush fund" to buy more knives.
