This is prep for the DAMASTEEL poll.
There are 20 patterns for the damasteel here:
FIRSTLY: Please go the the website, and click on the patterns
, to see examples of what this will look like.
Please actually do this for all the options, and bear in mind the SIZE of the blade. Some patterns suit different things better than others.
SECONDLY: Please copy and paste the following into your response
1. First Choice:
2. Second Choice:
3. Really don't want:
and give me your three answers in the message.
From the looks of the blade shape poll, it is heavily in favour of the LEAF shape blade. It's still early stages in the handle poll, and if it finishes much closer, then I may re-poll to clarify, as I think I may have put too many options on there. By the looks of it Ivory G10 is currently in the lead, but I wonder if I had left micarta off, and only but one CF option on, whether the results may be different.
For this reason, I am going to try and keep the steel options to 3, but 5 at an absolute maximum. I don't want to mess about doing 2 polls of 10, then whittling it down to this over the course of the next decade.
Thank you for all your participation here. I am trying my best to make the Damasteel UKPK decisions as inclusive as I can, and hopefully we will finish up with something that appeals to as many of us as possible. I am also juggling shifts at my hospital, and am absolutely knackered with other stuff going on. I am responding when I am able.
