    That Damascus knife is stunning. I actually want to find out how they made it. It looks like they didn't bathe it in acid but rather dripped it on the back of the blade.

    So basically we should just by Henkel knifes. These knives were very obvious, although I did like his explanations. Like in all of the videos of this series I wish they revealed the product names.

    Really? We need a "knife expert" to tell us a handcrafted damascus knife is more expensive than a boring looking mass produced serrated knife? price difference of 50x? Come on... Let me be a "car expert" and tell you a Ferrari vs aHonda. Ferrari is more expensive.

    You can tell just by LOOKING at these knives which ones are more expensive. Clearly, whoever chose these knives for comparison isn't terribly observant or sophisticated lol...

    Sure it was pretty obvious which were more expensive, but he dropped lots of knowledge that I never knew which was rad.
    His hands probably look like that from working with KNIVES all day. Talks about forging so maybe he also does blacksmithing.
    Enjoy the knowledge that's being dropped.

    I understand the work involved in making a Damascus billet and the work it takes to make the integral bolster etc.... BUT the price of that last knife is absolutely obnoxious. There must be a “name” or “brand” associated with it because no knife, regardless of being Damascus, should ever cost that kind of money.

    I like the Damascus steel knives too, but not at $3100. I picked one up on Gun broker dot com, from a seller named customknives for under $100. I would love to see a comparison of those knives to the $3100 special that you featured here.

    Lockecole81 18 hours ago

    $3100 for that damascus knife? I was not ready for that price point. I was thinking maybe $1000, a friend at Bladeshow had one of his integral damascus blades left on his table for $2200 and it was a multibar twisted construction...3100$ for a random san mai?
    But hey...get what you can for them.

    king james488 20 hours ago

    this is probably the worst one of these I've seen... it's immediately obvious what ones more expensive just by looking at the handle not to mention the brand and where it was made is stamped right on them.
    the guy's cringing the whole time he's looking at that cheep knife. those things aren't even worth $11, I think you meant $1.1 cuz I'm sure I've seen them at the dollar store lmao.

  • Luke Arts
    Luke Arts 23 hours ago

    11:20 big mistake on your Damascus identification here... This blade is NOT pattern welded steel damascus, it is Wootz Damascus steel (which does not have symmetric patterns because the patterns are formed in the alloy, not by simulating alloy in a controlled order) It's a pity they picked "Damascus" as a name for both, because aside from the etch-induced colour variations, they have very little in common.

  • John Bovee
    John Bovee Day ago

    Little bit of info on the Damascus blade. Being a knife maker myself I can tell you that's a raindrop pattern, not random. Random pattern is folded in multiple directions, i.e. Lengthwise, along the width and diagonally. Raindrop Pattern is produced by drilling, forging into a bar, twisted, drawing it out into a bar again, and then forged out into a blade

    Give him something difficult. Hmmm, I wonder what is more expensive, a plastic handled knife that weighs an ounce, or a well crafted, full tang blade? Of course you can tell the difference with that big of a gap.
