    Well...technically my Holy Grail knife is a $2500 Damascus-steel dagger made by Boker, so this is more like my Backup Holy Grail knife, but I can actually use this one so in that respect it's actually better. Here it is:

    The Boker Annual Damascus Knife for 2016, based on their Boy Scout 5.25" pocket knife. Nickel-silver bolsters, African Blackwood scales, stainless-steel lock, and a blade that isn't just Damascus, it's stainless Damascus, forged by Chad Nichols. So I can actually carry it in my pocket without it rusting. I knew all those years I didn't buy a Damascus knife would pay off eventually.

    This knife is perfect for FDC -- Fancy Dress Carry. It might even be good for EDC, though I'll probably continue to carry my normal Boy Scout knife with C-Tek scales most days:

    To be honest, I don't even miss the spring-assist mechanism from my Kershaw Chive most of the time.

    And yes, in proper EDC tradition, I bought two...of each. :D

    Thanks! I was excited when I found out that stainless Damascus exists; I have a Damascus letter opener and just from occasional use the handle developed a few rust spots that I haven't been able to fully remove, so I was convinced that there was no way I could have a Dasmascus knife that I could carry in my pocket on a daily basis. Fortunately modern metallurgy came to the rescue.
