I have many bins of old stuff. They probably have been here for 17-18 years.
Out of site, out of mind.

Here's a little custom knife I made in 2013.
Customer-supplied damascus, nickel silver handles.

It's a steel-making process that involves forging different steels together. Today it is mainly used to produce patterns in the steel.
Early use was to improve the quality of steel for blades.
