Alabama Damascus

I am trying to make up my mine what i want for them. I like the looks of Damascus but are their problem with them like wear to the pattern on the steel. Why do they put file cuts on the top of the blade. They also offer 1075 high carbon steel which i understand is good steel. Which one would you choose.

Some good reading. I've always liked their appearance but have never owned one.
