This time around Salem Straub raises the bar yet again by creating "Jelly-dubs" mosaic damascus, born from his ladder-W's pattern damascus, pieces of which are forged and then rolled sideways and combined precisely to form the pattern seen here. But of course, he doesn't stop there. The second distinct pattern is that of the edge bar, which Salem describes as a coarse, spirograph twist damascus. And then there is the integral bolster of his 'mollusk' damascus. With S-grind geometry, a razor-sharp edge, and wonderful balance, this is not just a pretty object. This is a tool, through and through. The handle, faceted, straight and comfortable, is shaped from one-of-a-kind G.L. Hansen & Sons micarta.
