Description

This stunning handmade Damascus steel chef’s knife is made from Middle-Eastern Damascus steel, which when forged creates this beautifully patterned blade. The luxurious handle is made from black ram horn and cow wood.

Damascus steel is a famed type of steel recognisable by the watery or wavy light and dark pattern of the metal.

The steel is named after Damascus, the capital city of Syria. The reputation and history of Damascus steel has given rise to many legends, such as the ability to cut through a rifle barrel or to cut a hair falling across the blade. It was once known as one of the strongest and most durable metals in the ancient world.

Aside from being beautiful, Damascus steel was valued because it maintained a keen edge, yet was hard and flexible. Weapons made from Damascus steel were vastly superior to weapons formed from iron!

Pattern weld Damascus is made out of several types of steel and iron slices, which are then welded together to form a billet.

handmade Damascus steel chef’s knife requires careful cleaning, but its sharp blade is very resistant to wear and tear. You will still need to sharpen your knives every so often, and the process is quite easy.
