Damascus History:
The Damascus steel blades are reputed to be not only tough but sharp and resilient edge. Damascus steel is placed in layers and heated and fused together by hammering. The steel is folded and this arduous process is repeated until hundreds of layers are achieved. It may be then twisted and reheated and flattened again. this produces patterns in the steel which is stunning in its natural design. The folds that cross the cutting edge, hard then soft, hard then soft, create a saw like serrated, edge. This in addition gives Damascus its sharpness. It’s especially relevant to add Damascus knives, viewed by some to be superior to stainless steel knives. These handmade knives are uniquely made and no one knife is ever like the other, giving each knife it’s original character.
