girl scout cookies? those wafer kind?

Full custom cookies... brilliant!!! I once had some really good san mai cookies. Not custom mind you... Just you standard production model. Not exactly sure what the maker used for the san mai construction, but the outside layers etched really dark while the center layer was almost white (and dead soft)!

George that looks like something that goes on a custom new design knife. Or could it be a leather stamp or something for kydex?

Les George

No, but some san mai cookies sound pretty good! :) Maybe that can be secret project #9875764764! :D

If this project is anything like his other work, I know I'll be extremely pleased.

Hey Les, this project is a knife isn't it? I'd hate to end up with a set of hot pink grips with your logo for my Kimber.

BTW, the original secret project mentioned here was this stainless san mai damascus from Chad Nichols.

Oh boy any chance you will be keeping some of that steel on hand for well in a few years when your order book opens? Hopefully I score a spot. I know that is a lot of wishful thinking but I am a really trying to think positively.

Chad made me a whole billet of this great stuff, so I will be working though it for a while.

This was one of his first attempts at this San Mai thing, I have a little he has made since then and he is just getting better, so I have no plans of using much else for damascus in the near future.


Actualy that is not true.... You might say I have another secret! :)


We'll get you hooked up Chris, don't you worry! :) I have a plan for when the orders book comes open again, fun for all! :)

Thanks again!2thumbs
