I was wondering where to purchase some of the Zebra Mosaic Damascus steel by Gary House? It is a beautiful pattern, also need some info on how to color it. Thanks again in advance.

Unfortunately, Gary's Zebra pattern is not available for sale.
It's an exclusive pattern he made for a limited edition version of Chris Reeve's "Munundi" (Not sure of that spelling)...I think the production run for that folder was kept to 100 pieces.

For what it's worth, while Gary House does indeed make some beautiful damascus...it is SERIOUSLY expensive!!!...More than twice the price of most other top damascus makers.

I'm sure if it were available, steel for a blade made from that zebra pattern would probably set you back $200-300...at least! (His bolsters can run $100+ for a small set).

Check out Delbert Elays damascus http://www.ealyknives.com/damascus_barstock.htm he has a Zebra pattern, and some other "animal" patterns.
To get the pattern in the damascus you can use Feric acid (circut board stuff) do a search on Etching Damascus, and you will find plenty to read.
