    Yes, from Blade Brothers, that is where I got the idea. They did add a tobacco pipe to the melt, so other materials should be possible.

    As usual, discovery channel is thin on details, but I figured that pattern is somehow printed first, then 'etched' in the salt bath. It looks too computer graphic designed for just happening on it's own.

    Hah, yeah that's the show. Yeah, it's hard to find info on the coloring processes for stuff like this. I know JM is especially secretive about how he does his heat treating for the JM-22 and JM-16 mods. It's like a trade secret or something. Each place has their own proprietary method. I think the Knife Brothers were selling that knife for like $6000, and that was low for what they sell. Puts the mod prices we have to deal with in perspective.

    It appears the damascus mod has already been made! I'm talking about actual damascus not M3 mokum damascus which is a composite not metal. Here is a BBM mod in damascus and Pedro of caravela has considered using the material as well. It should be possible to make it different colors as well.

    Not a fan of that look. Maybe if it were colored. The mod itself is nice looking though.

    The factory eVic coating reacts to the torch rather nicely. I got a little too aggressive though and bubbled it in a couple places. I think it looks nice though, and I jacked the threads up on the bottom of the tube so the battery cap doesnt screw in all the way, but it is still perfectly functional.

    That combination is killer. You really took what is a run of the mill mod and made it into something special and custom.

    Thanks a ton.
    It looks even better now that it is finished.

    I love how the blues and purples came out a little bit. That AGA looks cooler than some $300 attys out there.
