History of Damascus steel and Damascus knives

Damascus steel is a type of steel traditionally used in the Near East for manufacturing edged weapons. The name comes from Damascus, the capital city of Syria, and refers to distinctive patterns of blade decoration (such as banding and mottling) resembling flowing water.

Around 500 AD, blacksmiths near the city of Damascus began to craft knives and swords with unequalled hardness and cutting abilities: it was claimed that a Damascus blade was able to smoothly slice through a falling silk scarf. The excellence of these knives was provided by the unusual steel and an extraordinary technique of controlled thermal cycling used in manufacturing them. Handmade Damascus knife became legendary for both exquisite beauty of blade patterns and for their service properties. The original technique of producing the pristine Damascus steel was lost long ago to be revived again by late 20th century.

Custom Damascus knives – a fusion of exquisite craftsmanship

Damascus steel is easily recognizable by its dimpled, watery pattern. Along with its sleek aesthetical look, Damascus steel is highly valued as it is hard and at the same time flexible. Knives forged from Damascus steel are by far superior to those formed from ordinary metal.

For many people the words "Damascus steel" savor of a legend about a magical alloy with fantastic properties. And, partly, it is true, because of this steel’s fascinating appearance and its impressive performance characteristics. Custom Damascus knife is known to be very tough, resistant to shattering and capable of holding a keen and resilient edge.

Although some types of modern steel outperform the original Damascus, they don’t possess the renowned plasticity and hardness of the handmade Damascus blade.
