Re: Damaskeening Terminology
When writing for the Bulletin, Ed and I always used the spelling "damaskeening" or "damaskeened." Originally, the editor sent the proofs back with it changed to "damascening" or "damascened." We responded with some samples of watch company descriptions which used "damaskeened" and asked if it could be changed back to that spelling, since that was what the watch companies used. She agreed and we've used it that way ever since.
Getting back to Clint's question, I don't recall any terms to describe the damaskeening other than beautiful or elegant.
