Damascus Steel is characterized by it's strength, edge holding ability, and it's dramatic appearance. The Damascus Steel used in our knives comes from Japan and is called "Sanmai Damascus" or Sandwich Damascus. There is a core of vg-10 steel with 16 layers of stainless steel on each side to produce a rust free Damascus look blade. Damascus is created by forge welding many layers of steel together and repeatedly creating pattern by removing or deforming the material and then drawing the layers down in successive stages. It is a long, labor intensive process that results in a unique look that is often specific to the individual maker.
These 4" closed Liner Lock knives are the most affordable Damascus knives we offer and have a 3" blade.
The material in these knives is durable, fossilized Woolly Mammoth Tusk. Originating from Siberia, this material is over 10-15,000 years old. Each specimen has it's own unique characteristics, so no two knives will look exactly the same.
Woolly Mammoth Bones were used as construction material for dwellings by both Neanderthals and modern Humans during the ice age. Bones were made into various tools, furniture and musical instruments. Large Bones, such as shoulder bones, were also used to cover dead human bodies when buried.
Steel is the traditional 11th year anniversary -- and nothing says durability and timelessness like Stainless.
