My hands are never bloody but my gloves can be from time to time. I don't touch anything or anyone without gloves at work.

I'll try and get some pics of my mosaic damascus.......IMHO, Its awesome.

Have you ever done a coat of arms on a handle ? I have both my wife's family and mine. I could see a COA on each handle and a a symmetrical Damascus steel blade.

They are all beautiful, elegant, works of art. The proportions and lines are just so well done. You are indeed a craftsman, a dying breed in this world of mass produced BS.

Never done a COA on a knife. For something like that, I would suggest a scrimshaw artist to do it on [legal]ivory handles.

Never done any swords, and only a few "fighters." I'm of the belief that unless you are trained correctly, a "fighting knife" will get you killed. Best fighter I got has a 12 rd. magazine.

It would have to be a helluva lotta steaks and antlers.

I learned that through the efforts of several 'smiths and knifemakers. The person that taught me the most about forging damascus steel is Ryan Johnson, IMHO, one of the best in this part of the country. He runs the metal shop at UT in Chattanooga and is part owner of RMJ tactical.
