mesmorising :)

These are the kind of items I add just because they are something really special i.e. I doubt I'll sell more than 2 or 3 a year so for financial gain I would not even have bought them, I fell in love with them, so I've bought and listed these thinking only of our reglular visitors who appreciate their beauty as much as myself, there's not many other sword sites that are run with this mindset (press control D to add blades to your favourites now).

Hi Loz, still would like to know what the mix is? as there are lots of dodgy damascus blades floating about made with mild steel, which cant hold any sort of edge.

As Larny stated much higher quality steel, being a VG10 - Nickel Damascus, not a mild steel mix which cant hold an edge...

Plus its Cocobolo scales and perfect fit'n'finish with a super smooth pivot.
