Sorry Mick I disagree I prefere items with a story/historical relevance.

But each to his own :)

The history of Damascus steel is extraordinary, no one knows how the "origional" Damascus steel was made, even with all of our modern metalogy skills we still can't recreate it

I know that Geordie but the only Arabian history I'm interested is the crusades ;)

And I doubt the originals were made into Bowie knives ;)

Yea but the mystery intrigues me for one, and some of the pattern welded swords/knives are absolutely stunning, but as you said, each man to his own

well gents it finally got here and what a beauty it is i tell you the pics dont
even begin to do it justice the blade its the best finished ive got yet the advert?
says its a cm thick not so its just over 7mm thick which is much better if it was
1 cm thick it would have made it unessessarly heavy it weighs enough at 7mm thick
now the file work is spot on no faults at all the brass guard and butcap is finished to
a very high degree indeed theres a couple of very minor faults on the wood components
of the handle which aint a problem after all guys this is a custom hand made piece and
knowing the conditions in how there made minor faults are perfectly acceptable and i do
mean minor now the sheath is the best ive seen yet as good as the factory made one on the top
quality knives now will i buy any more from this maker to right i would now lawrence is selling
these at £90 to be honest i belive he,s robbing himself id put these out at least £130 to £140
there that good so buy and enjoy.
