Thank you. I have to write to the fun park where I think I’ve lost it and see if anyone found it.
My hopes are low.

Hey Isti,

I’ve got one of those Damascus Spyderco Firefly clones en route. Have you managed to have a look at one yet? Oh, ordered the CF Ganzo’s FB7601 as well. Looks lovely.

Hi Paul,
I had to practice some self-discipline about that damascus Firefly lookalike. I already have two ROCs and a FS SS Harpy in the mail. Smile According to the pics the blade looks like real damascus to me.
The Ganzo FB7601 is a fine folder I assure you.

Its only cheap Damascus for the look, like many blade you can clearly see the folding sheets of metal is only at the top but not on the cutting edge.

At least it’s damascus not laser engraved or acid etched pattern. Smile

Why is it “cheap” if you have a middle section? That’s called Sanmai and the Japanese are famous for it.
Damascus is all about the looks these days with these mono steels at hand, not to mention powder steels.

The only “advantage” of “pure” damascus is that one steel wears faster than the other, giving you micro serrations.
That’s good for fabric like rope, but not ideal for a fine sharpness.

You never know what steel you get on a clone but even the 8Cr13MoV damascus on the Enlan EL01D is not that bad.

Thank you! Fluted titanium has a certain charm for sure! Smile

I found my long lost Mikov SAK which I bought in the former Czechoslovakia many years ago. After some cleaning & oiling I reprofiled the edge on the main blade and finished it on a #3000 ruby stone. I also polished the handle scales to get rid off most of the scratches.

I like the looks of that. Always looking for slim, non-tactical looking knifes for dual use as a dining out steak knife. The chain restaurant steak houses tend to use a glorified butter knife for bread and steak duties.
Currently use a Maserin Gourmet 380 w/boxwood scales.
