Default EBay Damascus blades?

I know the general opinion will be they are sub par especially for under 20 bucks. But the dagger I ordered was so purty and the copyrighting is a damn good sales pitch. I figure it will be good for looking good at least.

Oil Tempered to 58-60HRC

Edges are Sharpened at 20 degrees!

HOW OUR DAMASCUS IS MADE: All our Damascus is real and not just an acid etch. Damascus is a mixture of 1095HC and 15N20 nickel carbon. You heat them up together and then fold the bar over and over to get the desired layers, ours are 384 layers.Then you burn the blade in acid, and it turns the nickel satin color and the high carbon turns blackish gray. This is how the layers are exposed to show the layers of the new steel created coined "Damascus". All Damascus is acid etched to show the layers. If you high polish the metal it will be shinny satin like all steels. Only after you burn the sides of the blade with acid do you see the layers of the two steels. Makes sense? After we make our knives we high polish the handles and put an edge on the blade. The high polishing buffs off the acid burned layer of the handle, and the blade edge is sharpened and the acid burned edge becomes satin.

All our knives are 100% handmade. We do not use any CNC machining to make our knives.

Each knife will be 100% unique and have may have some handmade characteristics that make them unique.

Are you buying it strictly to look at, or as a cutting tool?

If the steels being used are actually as advertised, it may function just fine, but you'll need to keep it oiled so that the 1095 portion doesn't rust. Edge retention and sharpening could end up being a mixed bag.

Or it could be a hunk of garbage.

Got it today and am impressed for 17 bucks, 8 inch blade. It is basically for looks because being a double edge dagger besides defending or attacking humans what good is it? Also bought a couple Arkansas toothpick double edge daggers with 6" 440c inch blades I like.
