Was browsing on tsg and came across this beauty. Im a fan of damascus japanese knives and started drooling when I found this. Id probably take forever to hit my approach shots since id be too busy admiring the wedge but wow, I didnt think anyone made wedges like this..

Does anyone know of other brands that make irons like this or with types of damascus finishes?

Some of their wedges remind me of Victor Figol paintings.

It really is like having a picture painted on a wedge, imagine the wedges that he's probably made for fun in his spare time

I love Itobori irons. Downside is they are super expensive, and it'll be years before I will be able to afford a set.

That is not Damascus.  Damascus is the forging of 2 or more steels/alloys or whatever in which when ground or shaped the pattern of their forged combination is revealed.    That wedge has a hammered finish on the back.  Knives(Damascus or not) can have that finish as it aids in the food falling off the blade because it makes the surface area inconsistent.  Metals are often hammered for aesthetics like copper sinks and these wedges,

Pretty cool idea to hammer the back of an iron, I like it.

Sorry about that, thank you for clarifying what I was trying to convey. I didn't mean to say that this wedge was a damascus style wedge. Just that I like the appearance damascus gives and I'm a fan of Japanese style knives in general. The only damascus finished wedge I could find was one that was limited edition from cobra a little while ago. Probably would consider these more so collectors items vs gaming wedges. Unless someone has the money to blow : )
