Picked this up yesterday. Handmade Damascus knife. Was a little rough when I found it and managed to talk the guy way down since it was rusty and had a little pitting on it. Finish and fit isn't perfect where the handle and blade meet the tang area, but its decent. Four hours of work to clean the rust up and clean the edge up a bit and I still need to put a final hone on it but pretty happy with it. Think it cleaned up nicely. Has a good feel and balance is good. Fits my hand like a glove.
