Below is the finished knife made from a piece of Damascus that was forged at Steve Hansen's shop tour last October and put in the Iron in the Hat raffle for some lucky person to win.  It was won and made in to the beautiful knife below.  One of the perks of attending our shop tours and joining in on the fun of our raffle.  Great job to the person who made this knife & thanks to the demonstrators who made and forged out the Damascus.
