    Perkins Damascus Bushcraft Knife

    Anyone got any experience with Perkin Knives - they use Damascus Blades and and i have no experience on these blades ... just looking for some input about the steel and wonder if anyone has any of their products ...

    *link edited by Mod team; probably not what we are looking for*

    cheers

    The knives look oddly familiar.

    I don't know but it does look like that cheap crap you used to get on ebay.

    Re: Perkins Damascus Bushcraft Knife

    Ahem, they look like they come from a source that was a long debate on here some weeks ago........maybe, maybe not........are they actually delivered wrapped in flock wallpaper too.....?

    Personally................not for me
    - as one lovely old knifemaker said to a younger one recently when passing on some tips, "Only a pleasure Willem. Not long,
    and the old hands will not be able to make some fancy stuff. Passing on what I know to others will keep the wheels turning."



    I love not Man the less, but Nature more..........It's not the years in our life that matter.......it's the life in our years

    Search for damascus on ******* and you'll see hundreds like this.
    If you want this sort of blade go to Arduous Enterprises UK distributor or Brisa.fi and you'll get good steel.

    Also "we" fold the steel to get 300 layers do "we" ?!?

    If you believe them that is... the other character next to Don is Dereck Glaser, of DG Forge fame.

    Mr Usman SAJJAD has done well to attract to Dagenham such prestigious smiths in less than 18 months of existence.

    The web site is also highly sophisticated, incorparating latin quotes everywhere

    Also, have a look at the T&C...

    Looks fishy.

    Item AR17 is supposed to have a snakewood handle...

    It doesn't look like snakewood to me!



    I'll stick to real knifemakers.

    Kind regards,
