Damascus Utility Knife (T21)

Postby Lone Wolf » Wed May 21, 2014 11:42 am

"12" Overall, hand forged, 7" substantial 6mm thick, Damascus steel blade with detailed filework and sharpened blade. Full tang, with solid brass fittings and genuine bone handle grips. Complete with high quality leather sheath. Lovely item, handmade by a master knife smith at a small traditional forge."

Bought this one awhile ago, out of all my damascus blades this one has by far the nicest handle imo, its beautiful and the whole shape of the knife is very elegant. Stinky rating for the sheath on this one was about 3 out of 5, but a few weeks sitting on top of a cupboard has sorted that out.

My dammy blade went black, so I scrubbed it down with WD40 and wire wool so it was back to the proper colour. Within days it was black again. I've now got it back to normal finish with a rust eraser and give it a coat of Ren wax. Hoping that works with it.

I've got 4 damascus knives, 1 a folder, I've only had issues with one, it got rusty it kept getting rusty in the same place and I kept scrubbing it off and soaking the thing in oil, I keep an eye on it, its gone black I scrubbed that off a few weeks ago and slapped more wax on it.

all of them treated the same, all cleaned the same way and ren waxed, I don't know what the problem is with that one but as my oldest one, (the folder) is fine its not put me off, just have to keep an eye on em.

The brass discolouration hits all of them tho, and others, I've got two elk ridge ones that have gone the same way, brass discolours where that section is in the leather sheath. Tho you can't seeit that much in those pics.
