This category offers various Damascus knives that have beautiful decorated blades with mottling pattern. Damascus steel is very quality and resilient material. The steel was produced only in India and Sri Lanka once. It was developed in India around the year 300 BC. Products from this steel were imported to Europe much later. Damascus steel is also known as wootz or bulat. It is beautiful material and its pattern looks as flowing water.

The original method of Damascus steel production is not known. Many smiths tried to get to the root of the mysterious production of Damascus steel, but they were not successful. False Damascus (pattern-weld) just was created. It is made by pattern welding. This technology is known as the Damascene. Also Damascus knives are made in this way.

Damascus steel has been used for the production of swords and Damascus knives. Today, however, it is also used for production of jewelleries (mainly thanks to a wonderful pattern on the material). Damascus knives are really quality and beautiful. Take a look at other knives that are offer by our e-shop. You will probably excite about our best knives!

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
