That is fantastic!

Stunning maple, but the real achievement in my opinion is the finish on the pattern weld. It looks like steel!

Too many damascus blades look like they have painted black patterns on them. A deep etch and a manly trip to the buffer gives topography, depth, shadow... simply outstanding!

I love an unapologetic statement like the one this steel finish makes--not begging for a second look--DEMANDING one... with cool confidence.

I am inspired!
