In celebration of my first job after graduation I have decided to treat myself to a little.





Hull Custom Knives. I look forward to getting this- it seems that they do quality work.

Happy Happy Happy

Basically it is a combination of two metals that works to give the knife the softness and hardness to put and keep a good edge. This knife has high carbon steel and nickel.

It's a real old timey design- back to the syrian days.

I'm sure someone can chime in with more info.

Damascus is a process by which steel is hammered and folded and hammered and folded, time and again. Makes for some terribly strong blades, and incredibly attractive as well!

Thanks everyone. Is a 6.5" blade legal to carry or only while hunting..etc?

A body would think that a carry permit owner would have no trouble? This thing can't go 950 fps that I know of ;\)

Not to hijack but I have some shotguns that are damascus barrels are the barrels formed by the same process? The barrels look more like a woven wire or something.

App American,
Congrats on graduation and employment. So what field are you employed in these days?

A damascus barrel was made by winding thin strips or iron or steel around a mandrel. It is then heated to welding temperature (1500-2200 degrees, depending on alloy), and the end of the mandrel is struck on the ground. The compression forces weld the joints together.

nice knife!!
