    I tried something different I took a piece of crushed w's about 1 inch long and ran it through my rolling mill and stretched out the w's.
    Here is how it turned out.
    Steel 15N20 / 1080
    Curved stainless fittings and fiber spacers
    Stabilized maple burl

    Not sure about blade profile, totally not my style, but crushed W's pattern is super! And the wood structure works really well with the steel.
    Bravo!

    I kind of hesitated about the blade, but it kind of grows on you after while. Any way sometimes you just have to step out of the box
    and do something different.
    You are right on about the wood, I chose it because it does seem to flow with the steel.

    Hey Cal.

    As a noob to the whole knife making gig, it's impressive to see the people that have the skill and courage to push outside the box. If it all goes horribly wrong with Damascus, that's a lot of hours down the drain. There's no growth in the hobby if people don't try new things.

    After cruising all of the project threads, your shock wave pattern still stands out as freaking awesome. I've gone back to look at those pics a few times. :)

    Keep up the amazing work.

    Cheers.
    Gary
