Damascus steel represents craftsmanship that goes back more than a thousand years. Even in antiquity, a few resourceful sword-smiths knew how to create blades of unusual toughness and hardness from different kinds of steel. The multiple folding and forge welding led to a homogenization of the material, and required a great deal of skill and dedication. Then as now, the crowning highlight in the production of a Damascus blade was the finish. With careful grinding, polishing and etching the unique and characteristic patterns are reveled, thereby providing a glimpse into the soul of the steel. (The blade of this knife is manufactured from stainless high quality Damascus steel, 60 HRc).
The handle scales are made of Yew Wood, best known for its fine grain and smooth texture. A beautifully inlaid cross & shield and Damascus main blade round out this special knife’s appeal. Complete with a windowed Collector’s Box and Letter of Authenticity.
