khimwoon, if you like a slim edc, consider custom made slipjoints. try natural materials - they're a joy to hold. For about $400, you could really get into custom made barlow, trapper, swayback etc styles with bolsters and shields on them. If you don't want to spend so much, you could try GEC brand of slipjoints. Using traditionals makes it sheeple friendly too.

for $400 though, you could find a lot of modern folders with better steels etc.

a customised SAK would be nice - with stonewashed blades and nice CF + wood scales. yessss. but those aren't exactly cheap either.

here's something in my inbox - advertisement for a new folder.



It's one of those designs that tries to incorporate every cool thing in the market - compound grind, tritium, milled scales ala shirogorov, fullers in the blade, replaceable lock insert. It's basically a showcase for an OEM manufacturer Do you like it?

Sometimes I think simpler is nicer.

Good morning.

Hey guys,

Came across Damascus knives being mentioned on a youtube video about cooking, and I'm wondering if it's possible to buy in Singapore? Also, got such thing as a Damascus steel letter-opener boh?

Yes, and not sure.

For the former, damascus kitchen knives can be found in almost all major dept stores like Tangs, Taka, Isetan etc (in the kitchen knives section, and mostly Japanese kitchen knives) as well as all specialty kitchen equipment stores like TOTT, Sia Huat, Razorsharp etc. I like to recommend Razorsharp as they bring in knives other than the usual KAI/Shun, including custom knife makers / small labels. They also have lots of naniwa stones for sale.

Note that most Japanese damascus knives are really in a sanmai construction - so the core isn't folded/damascus, only the cladding/laminate is and usually in a suminagashi pattern.

For letter openers, I have no idea. I open my letters with my pocket knife

Happy shopping.

Damascus is just for looks nowsadays.

The method is used due to steel impurity in the past. So using Damascus method of forging is suppose to purge the impurity.

But nowsadays metallurgy is advanced and most steel is purged of impurity and even using powder steel to make any kind of alloy steel.

So a good modern steel is as good or even better than Damascus.
