    Just a little skeletonized necker/utility, but check out that damascus! Even my crappy pics can't hide how cool this stuff is!

    Small knife; maybe 5" overall, with a cutting edge under 2". Still, I can get 4 fingers on the handle, it's ground nice and thin and it just seems a really handy style. Larry Donnelly mosaic damascus. 1080/L6/Nickel, I believe.

    That is some nice steel, Dan! The beauty of mosaic is you can grind it as thin as you like and you don't lose the pattern........unless, of course, you grind all the way to the other side.;)

    Be nice to see you make your own steel, Dan.

    I think you could make some nice patterns, and encourage you to try. Your grinds are coming along very nicely!

    Best Regards,

    to bring it out...
    In this case, max 1 minute in Photoshop....

    Thanks, bud. The pattern in that steel is really amazing. I think the wood is just as cool, too!

    Here's my attempt at improving your horrible photos.... lol...
