Damascus steel is certainly not a material, but in fact, a procedure that is utilized to consolidate distinctive kinds of steel into a stunning, uniquely hardened Blade. We fold the 15n20 nickel and 1095 high carbon 8 times, which gives your edges 512 layers.
Although the blade is tough and hardened, the process of moulding the metal into different shapes and styles is easily done in the hands of a master knife smith. Damascus steel blades are known for holding a sharper edge longer than any other steel.
There is nothing more beautiful than a Damascus steel blade. The etching on each knife is unique and when you understand how it is made, it tells a story of how the master knife smith made this particular blade. The waves of nickel steel and carbon steel bend their way in layers on each blade giving each Damascus blade its own unique fingerprint, that can never be repeated.
