    Not sure if this will find a buyer here but I figured I might as well ask here first before I find an alternative venue for posting it, and offer it at a friendly price.

    Long story short, I made a 6/8 razor in damascus. When I forged it, I cut the billet just a little too small. As a result I had to really squeeze during forging, and the pattern is not what I wanted it to be. It also doesn't have the same amount of 'action' on both sides.

    So rather than finish it myself, I figured I'd see if someone fancied a damascus blade at a sharp price. Better pics can be provided upon interest if need be. This is just a cellphone pic after etching and oiling to show what the hollows look like in terms of pattern. I realize the tang is very dark and I can provide better pics but there is no point in doing that right now (it's way past midnight) if people don't like the hollows to begin with. My day is done. time to throw back a shot of something flammable and get ready to tuck in. :)

    EDIT: Price drop from is 250 USD + shipping to 200 USD, shipping included.
    To give a reference: normally my unfinished carbon steel blades run 200 + shipping.
    My normal damascus razors go 700+

    Not a whole lot of interest so I'll drop the price to 200 USD with shipping included.
    I'll give it a couple more days here and then I'll also post it to FB and SRP.

    Hi Bruno, just want to close the loop with you. Received blade today. Nice blade. Now need to look through my stash of scale materials to see what will look best.
    Thank you.
