    Here are the first two for 2013.
    Damascus 180 layers of 1080 /15N20 Raindrop pattern.
    One has a G10 handle the other has double dyed maple.

    Very nice. I really like the double dyed maple. The G10 is awesome too but there is something about natural handle materials that usually win me over.

    They look awesome. Like Grayzer natural usually will also win me over but I would have a hard time picking my fav. Also really like the smooth transition between the ricasso and the grind on your knives. Can't wait to see more.

    Very nice! i like that pattern a lot :)

    Do you completly finish the handle and then install it after the blade is etched? Or do you touch up the etch on the spine when your done?
