Our Damascus knives are handcrafted from extraordinary materials and refined for the highest cutting performance, unparalleled sharpness, and striking aesthetics. Each knife is a unique work of art, styled and crafted by master bladesmiths from the hand-carved edge to the Damascus blade.
The Damascus blades for these knives were created by forge welding multiple layers of steel into a Solid block called a billet (4340 &1095 High Carbon Tool Steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steel differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the steel. The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility and toughness and produces invisible serrations that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 54-56 HRC on the Rockwell scale.
