A Damascus style Knife bought at Purdey's London

This is an interesting one, a Damascus bought at Purdey's, London. Nice compact size, walnut handle, all very good, but they sell them blunt! I suppose for safety? Anyway, try as I may I just couldn't get an edge on it. Eventually re-hardened the edge to dead hard and put a very light temper on it only. Then my knife-making friend bevel ground a broad edge on it and I took the fine stone and strop to that. Now it shaves, and hopefully it will get the skinning test soon.
