This is a picture of a section of my damascus steel knife blade. It’s only a section because if I pan back enough to get the whole knife in the shot, you can’t see the wavy patterns on the blade. The wavy patterns are made by folding the metal over and over, and then when the knife is finished, etching with acid to bring out the pattern.
The handle is silver-mounted bone. It was made by Tod some years ago.
It’s a beautiful piece of kit and one of my prized possessions. In today’s society, where machine-produced goods are cheap, it’s nice to own good quality items made by skilled craftsmen.
