About Handmade Damascus Steel Folding Knives:
Damascus steel refers to blades made from wootz steel that come from India. Wootz steel was first introduced by Arabs at the start of the 3rd century and eventually fed a weapons industry. The blades made from this tough, resilient steel bear the name of the capital of Syria and features distinctive banded patterns on the surface that swirl and flow. This characteristic is due to the different elements used in its forging process and much like finger prints, no two blades will ever have the same patterns.
For any number of reason, the art of making Damascus steel blades was lost and although there have been claims, no one has successfully replicated the actual process used in the olden times. Today’s modern Damascus steel is made from different types of iron and steel that are welded together to form billets and is in itself a work of art.
Modern Damascus steel knives are high performers and have the ability to keep an edge for a long time. They are as attractive now as they were back then. More often than not, these knives are adorned with bone or horn handles that complement the blade quite nicely. Since no two Damascus steel knives are alike, chances are, your first one will lead to another and before long, you may find yourself obsessed with it.
Should you decide to jump in, take your time and choose well. Buy only from reputable sellers and get only the best knives you can find. Avoid the cheap ones as these are more often than not made to a lower standard. Having said that however, keep in mind that you are buying modern Damascus steel. Real Damascus steel can probably be found if you look hard enough but will probably cost a fortune to buy.
