Tanaka is iron clad.  It's easy to thin when you need to, as opposed to stainless cladding which feels kind of gummy on the stones.

Any damascus knife you thin is going to scratch up the blade face.  You need to refinish with a sandpaper progression and some flitz.  You can also make it 'pop' with some light etching

If you want a low maintenance knife that looks good after normal sharpening, look at wide bevel knives and forget damascus

I haven't looked at single bevelled knives at all. Could you kindly link an example?

Thankyou
The sharpening is similar, but I'm talking about a wide bevel double bevel knife like this:
You don't want clad (layered) blades. You don't want pattern welding (faux damascus). Are you after a single metal damascus?
Those are expensive. Delbert Ealy, Devin Thomas, other customs. Doesn't exist in this price range
