Well I did learn something - I was aware that Damascus steel no longer exists in it's original form, but a modern 'equivalent' is still available (but very expensive) and there are etched 'faux Damascus' variants available, but knew little about the history or how it is crafted.

I gave up on the History Channel years ago when it changed format and decided to concentrate on programs about assholes at storage locker auctions, so I got something from this.

Personally I'd rather have a spork, but the knife looks decent, and if it holds up to work use and you enjoy owning it, everybody wins.
