Damascus for other than blade use? Rings, pens, Flashlights, E-Cigs, Etc.

I have recently been furnishing round damascus stock for a variety of uses.  

Tool steel can be a problem to work with for the unfamiliar. Milling and drilling tool steel can cause problems not encountered in grinding. I expect knife-makers to understand basic heat-treatment, work-hardening and the concepts of annealing and have the appropriate tools.  

If you aren't experienced working with pattern welded material or tool steels in general there is lots of information in the knife-making forums on my links page.
