This knife is one of a kind. It started as extra ends of damascus I had laying around I then sandwiched two blocks of 1084 between the 1095 & 15n20 damascus which created about 400 layers. This created the unique look of this blade which you will not find anywhere else. It's heat treated to a 58 on the Rockwell c scale. I put a blue c-tek handle on it which in the sunlight can look almost see through blue with aluminum honeycomb throughout. Held on the blade with 3/16ths aluminum pins and high strength epoxy. It fits very comfortably in the hand with notches for your thumb for extra stability. Knife measures 8" oal, 1.25" wide, .125 thick Comes with a handmade leather sheath.
