I've just begun venturing into making my own Damascus. This was my second billet, 160 layers of random pattern 1080 and 15n20. I rounded out the knife with polished stainless fittings and some dark giraffe bone on a fileworked frame handle. OAL is 9 1/2" or so. I'll have this knife and several others at the Lone Star Knife Expo March 25/24 in Dallas.
Here's the show flyer, for those who want the info.
