Interesting. Think that's a different damascus pattern than they've used before, or is it just a wierd picture?

Waaaaaaaaaaaaay too busy looking! Just a hot mess in my opinion. Surprised to see St Nick's putting something out like this, compared to all the other amazing exclusives they've dropped.

I don't think it's a St Nick's exclusive. They just put em up first. I think it's probably the same distributor that is doing the zome GITD models.

It is super busy, but I admit I like it. Kinda like a Pollock splatter painting. ;)

Is that a saber grind or FFG? That pattern makes it look saber ground. The photos almost make it look like one of those 90’s 3d optical illusion things, haha. I’m sure it’s different in person tho.

I kinda like it and placed a preorder for the Delica. I’m calling the pattern “tv static Damascus”.

That is way too busy, but that's because of the grind, with FFG the pattern would be less busy.

The description says FFG. The Damascus pattern on these is a bit too intense compared to the previous offerings but I suspect that it’s just the particular ones that they photographed.

They are just another run of Damascus Delica blades in yet another color/style FRN akin to the recent KnifeJoy exclusive version...

Looks like the "raindrop" pattern, but the TV static is a viable and preferred description credited to Tabo :D. Looks to my eyes FFG, although the pattern does deviate and gives an illusion of a typical saber grind. Hard to decipher clearly from the photos though :confused:

Really like it and wonder how it would look with white scales instead of the grey/gray and black?

I'm getting flashbacks from back when channels went off the air at night.

Almost headache inducing, it's so busy.

That’s one of my very many Delica blade swaps... Here’s a few other recent ones:
