  1. I have bought several handmade Damascus steel bowie knives that were made by this knife maker out of New York. He goes by the name Alonzo Gil. And I am just wickedly Impressed with these knives. Sturdy and hefty and solid, these knives are. And the blades and handles are just absolutely Stunning!! And the quality is Beyond Measure!!

    And what is even better, the Damascus steel that he uses is the Real Deal! It's not that etched-on-top-only Damascus steel. The layers that show throughout the blade on the knives, along with the weight of each knife, are direct proof of this!!

    I believe the Damascus steel used in these knives by Alonzo Gil is one of the Highest Quality Damascus steel that you can get. And I also believe the steel that he uses is made here in the USA. But even if it isn't, its quality is superb. And so are the handmade knives by Alonzo Gil!! Knives beautiful enough to be in a display, yet made well enough to use...hardcore style!!

  2. I am 'wondering' out loud..Where exactly are these knives made?? New York or someplace else?

  3. the components of knives like these can be derived from many different countries & then constructed & assembled at one location.

  4. OK, a knife that sells for $6.50 isn't worth the 'makers'time put in. Is this a 'Pakistan' knife? OK, if so no problem but say so. Is 'Alonzo Gil' a 'real' person? I don't see a tang stamp or country of origin on any pic.

  5. you would probably get better information from the eBay merchant selling the piece & credited in the post (if it is still for sale).

  6. There are a bunch of these blades under many different monkers, CFK, iPAK, Alonzo. They are D2, A2, Damascus, and no one will provide exact details, but 1/4 inch thick blades that take and hold an edge for 30.00 is a deal. Like TV's Phones and other gadgets, the market and supply have caught up. I am buying and testing several from different brands. I will write more in bladeforums. I plan to beat these blades to death. The only downside is that possibly a few dollars make it back to assbuttistan.

  7. I have been reading your posts regularly. I need to say that you are doing a fantastic job. Please keep up the great work. http://huntingpleasures.com/
