Thanks. I hadn't heard about Jantz. I've bought from texas knifemaker supply before but Janzt looks like it has a better selection given the different steel qualities for each design choice.
I made 2 knifes from Damascus blanks about 10 years ago. The first I gave to my dad and the second got lost the first time I took it out fishing with a buddy. My buddy got stung by a bee and didn't know he was allergic. Started turning red, shaking, and had a hard time breathing so we ran to the car, threw our junk in and took off for the nearby convenience store to get him some antihistamines (the nearest hospital was an hour away). Somewhere during that mess the knife got lost. I haven't talked to the guy in years since he married a crazy B. Last I heard he started carrying an epi pen around.
