    thanks

    Try Stuart Mitchell.. Very nice but, isn't something that nice going to end up stuck in the draw. I've one of his Muntjax in the stainless steel he uses.. Lovely!

    Not cheap but as you asked for quality I would recommend Emberleaf knives. Nice guys to deal with.

    you need to be careful of Damascus a lot of stuff especially cheap is Pakistan/Indian made and is pretty much any old steel mashed together to get a pattern But wont harden or hold an edge

    Either get one from a Smith who makes their own Pattern welded blades
    or a maker who definitely used a good quality pattern i.e Alabama Damascus

    if you want stainless then its Damasteel and that will not be cheap can be 150 just for the bar to make one normal sized knife and thas for the cheaper patterns

    +1 it's why there are knives and then KNIVES, I can recommend Emberleaf, top quality steel and knives.

    You might find a good knife from the following,
    Heinnie Haynes.com
    Karesuando knives.
    Kellam worldwide inc.
    Tommi Puukko.
    Ragnar's Finnish knives.
    Roselli knives.

    Have a look at the Emberleaf Cael AR Special Edition, which is made with Damascus. I have the ordinary Cael AR, which does it a disservice as it is not at all ordinary, and have yet to handle a better designed knife for deer stalking.
