Oh nice! I love the rough/mirror finish on the blade, and the handle and sheath compliment it perfectly!

leaving the forgemarks to the "cheecks" of the blade is a traditional feature. Hundrets of years ago, when puukko's was a matter of surviving, the blades "cheecks" was never grounded, cause it didint have to be ground. From those ages to this day many bladesmith in finland like to left the forge marks visible, just to keep up the tradition.

heres the pics i promised in Jörg's thread!

so this is a damascus puukko made by my friend, made in the traditional method. it has 1048576 layers, basicly it has been folded 20 times, made from 2 pieces. materials are 1095 and 15n20. He mader this puukko when he still could make them, sadly he cant forge anymore :( this puukko is made in 1993, and it can be seen from the hamon of the blade, its not so strongly visible anymore. Handle and shieth he made from the goose he shot, and the leather was barked the traditional method. but heres the pic's i promised!

That's quite an awesome knife, though here is something to consider;
Did he actually fold it 20 times?
If the blade is 1/8" thick, each layer will be only about 400 atoms thick, given there are so many of them.

With such small numbers I think the effect of "traditional" damascus may be lost, and it may act more as a homogenous alloy of the two steels.

But anyway, you can clearly see the nice patterns, so I'm inclined to think it wasn't actually folded 20 times.

believe me, it is folded 20 times. Traditional method has different starting point, so it is visible with this kind of layer count.

JSR didnt link the picture that shows the welding marks.
