I have really been babying my large lefty basket weave, basically just hauling it around in my pocket. Seeing this helps... soon.. one day I hope.
Call me crazy, but isn't the idea of damascus more art than function? I know it will wear, but yours still looks nice worn.
Having a backup really lets me not worry. Silly, I know. But, that knife will probably never be available again. I would snatch it instantly!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS: WTB Large lefty basket weave damascus
When I first purchased that knife before it even arrived I had made my mind up it would be a user. The day it was delivered I went to the shop for lunch, got it out of the mail, opened it, threw it straight in my pocket and went back to work and straight to using it. I have some wood/Damascus that basically just get carried and minimal use but my Pj and micarta Damascus get used like any other. The etching will fade and they show scratches. I personally like it. Using Damascus isn’t for the faint of heart haha. I read a thread from @kidcongo about working a Damascus Crk and talked to another lefty before I made my purchase. It helped knowing what would happen.
It’s all for looks. I’ve had two damascus and of the two I’ve only used one lightly. From now on I’ll be picky with the type I buy, but I won’t baby them. Unless collecting, IMO, damascus looks best worn, once novelty wears off.
River walk in New Orleans... absolutely gorgeous day out
I got my first crk in today and I’m super excited! It’s perfect, and the thing drops shut like a guillotine with no blade play!
My CRK Small Sebenza 21 hanging with some friends today - 20 years worth of well EDC'd folders. Hope this is still considered 'scenic'!
