Part of my damascus rose knife that is similar to:
only this one is even better. A lot better actually.
However, I'm not going to show the whole knife yet. Not until I have the stand finished. I did want to send photos of the finished product to the client. I really liked this picture so I figured I'd put it on here before I do all the other pictures of it with the blade and everything.
It ends up being 5 alternating layers of stainless steel and brass. The sepal itself is 360 layers of 5160/1080, which you can barely see from the photo. The leaves are twist pattern damascus which is the same as the stem and blade, since the blade and stem are the same piece. In all it's 10 different pieces of steel. With three different layered or patterned damascus pieces.
This will be one of my last ones, I think. At least as far as the damascus goes. I'll probably make cheaper non-damascus rose knives later on. Once I fill the orders of the next two, I think I'll take a break from them, because its a lot of work. >.<Logan Pearce www.pearceknives.com
