Damascus knife blade is forged from two types of steel and nickel:
– european steel 100Cr6
– carbon steel
Steel 100Cr6 has good toughness, good tempering stability and small deformation during heat treatment. After quenching and tempering, 100Cr6 material has high hardness and uniformity, good wear resistance and high contact fatigue strength.
Carbon steel contains 0,7-0,82% of carbon and 0,8-1% of magnesium.
Sharpness: great for sharpening a knife, easy to sharpen.
