The Damascus and Koa Carving Set
This Carving Set was a commission that has taken a while to complete. I
created all of the Damascus used in the project.  The Carving Set were
forged as integrals using a high layer Damascus comprised of 1075,
5160, L-6, and 15n20 steels.  Most of the Steak Knife Set was forged
from this same billet of steel.  The Koa was ordered direct from Hawaii
and came in a single block which I separated into book-matched handle
material.  I prefer un-stabilized natural wood because of how it stains,
and because it actually ages naturally. There are four sets of two Steak
Knives with each pair consisting of a different pattern.  Two each of
Ladder, Wolf-Tooth, Random, and Raindrop Stretch. The guard material
in all cases is stainless steel which has been grooved and heat blued. Koa
was stained, received three coats of tung oil, two coats of polyurethane,
and one final stage of satin tung oil. A challenging but rewarding project!
