Damascus Steel Knife with horn hilt, approx. 23 cm

Hand-crafted knife with a blade forged out of Damascus steel (144 layers) and riveted grip plates made of cow horn.

Delivery includes a basic leather sheath.

The terms Damascus steel or pattern welded designate a compound steel forged out of two or more different types of
steel. It is named after its birthplace, the Syrian city of Damascus, a former stronghold of the patterned steel production.

As a common practice, a harder high carbon steel and a milder low carbon steel are repeatedly forge welded and folded together.
The high carbon steel ensures a higher hardness, a better temperability and longer lasting edge retention, whereas the milder
steel confers greater blade flexibility and tensile strength. This procedure, which arose in a time where steel qualities were
often low and inconsistent, enables to combine the positive attributes of the various steel grades.

Besides, the different shadings generated by the varying carbon content of the alternating layers engender strikingly beautiful
patterns, such as the twisted motif called Torsion Damascus pattern or the Rose Damascus pattern. Undoubtedly,
these unusual patterns partly explain why inherent magical properties were attributed to the Damascus steel blades of the Middle
Ages. Such a damascene sword blade is for example depicted as a bloody worm or a poisonous snake in the Edda.
