I've recently seen some Kershaw knives on sale that feature Damascus blades. The pricing seems really low in comparison to other Damascus blades from other makers and I was curious as to the quality of Kershaws Damascus blades since I have always loved the look of Damascus blades? I am also a firm believer in the whole "If it looks to good to be true, it usually is" rule. I am considering a Damascus Leek as my EDC but wanted to make sure this was a good choice? Thanks.

It's like anything on the price / quality scale - generally - and in this case (and from personal experience) you're making a good choice. Kershaw source theirs from Alabama Damascus, http://www.alabamadamascussteel.com/. You're not buying 'junk', if that's what you're worried about. You're not buying Rolls Royce quality either.
