Is there anyone else wanting the IKC 2011 Knife?

With the order headed in and the final stages being set for this...we do have the ability to add a few more knives.  Since there have been new members come on board, I thought it would be nice if we let them have an opportunity to order one of these beauties also.

Here's wishing all iKC members a very blessed Christmas and a happy

Hello to all!

I am a serious collector of both damascus knives and damascus billets.   I am currently buying billets from such makers as Robert Eggerling (quilt damascus and slanted quilt damascus), Chad Nichols, Devin Thomas, Robert Calcinore, and others.
