Jerking off to cartoons every night doesn't really do a lot of good either buddy.

a few things
1) Im not sure If I believe the hype and that the price is worth it.
2) They are pretty
3) I have used the hell out of each of these- mainly household carpentry car work and some rope splice/design projects... the puma knife seems to rust easy but tough, the little boker is a warrior so far.
The Boker Magnum. The screw on the side came loose, they replaced it with a new knife no questions within 3 weeks.. Im a Boker fan now. Boker USA looks like a solid company.
That is a little rust you see. The thing is, I KNOW how to take care of knives. The rust on this Puma tec is a problem though. I don't know a lot about puma tec, It is probably one of the many chinese damascus companies. Im ok with that. It seems tough. It keeps an edge. Sometimes Chinese sweatshop machine line stuff has quality at a good price though. I got this for 45$ on sell and I would recommend it.
I dont like synthetic handles, this is one. And its ok actually. It sure as hell doesnt slip. I dont love it though.
Ok so, Im not sold on damascus, Ive got a hunch its just a friggin method of selling knives at a higher price. I lived in asia for a while and there the knife ppl will not touch the stuff. So I dunno.

You'll have to go to a foundry to have it tempered once you fashion the blade but it's worth the trouble. It's not cheap though. A blank for a bowie sized blade will run you about 200 dollars. Worth every penny.
