I still stand my belief that the thread should not have been deleted. Pat called a spade a spade, and he was right to do so (though he didn't do it very tactfully, with his naming of this thread). As far as I am concerned, the thread was about damascus, and it was also about a reproduction damascus dagger being offered on the internet.
