Damascus Steel Blade
I AM STRONG, SHARP AND BORN TO CUT. A well-made Damascus Steel blade will retain its sharpness for longer than most quality blades due to the way their metals are forged.
Anciently, Damascus Steel was what was typically found in weapons. But, today, we don’t forge the materials in the same way, however with modern technology, a Damascus Steel Blade is still a far superior product.
Damascus Steel Knives are durable, flexible and stain resistant. They are high carbon forged steel (VG-10) and recognisable by their wavy patterned design and exceedingly sharp edge!
They tend to be more expensive than other stainless steel knives, but if you treat it as an investment, you will surely get your money’s worth.

Damascus Care Instructions:
