Damask blank skinner blade
5.5 long x 1 wide pattern welded )similar to demas but put in steel box and a one time smash. Loon etch on one side loon and cicks on other side (a water theme blade). Handle not fully shaped so you can adapt to your personal shape (grinder or belt sander works well) Intended for a high end finished product. Good price as just the steel can run $200. I got a trade deal on volumn on the steel. A US steel worker I know as 'Bill,' did the billet.
