You don't want clad (layered) blades. You don't want pattern welding (faux damascus). Are you after a single metal damascus?

Yes ordo, that'll be it

So, for a single metal blade you need to spend upwards of 500?
Oh, no. MillionKnives just mentioned 'author' damascus knives from very reputable blade-smiths in America.

If you resign the idea of having a fashion damascus blade, and please do it, you can have for instance a Hiromoto (Benuser can tell more about this brand than me, but i guess the Honyaki series is single metal) for about $279, which is really cheap for honyaki blades. Here's a 240 mm. gyuto (please skip the Santoku).


Also Misono Swedish mono steel 240 mm. gyuto for $137,70


Masamoto HC 240 mm. virgin carbon steel gyuto for $212.


And Hattori, Kanemasa, etc., all single metal knives NON damascus.

I try to guide bonesetter into the moral, almost religious benefits of single metal non damascus knives and all of you are spoling the (already wasted) guy. Damnation!
