Damascus Steel Why Do We Use It?

Damascus steel has a cutting edge that is superior to all knives. Not only that, damascus steel holds a razor sharp edge longer, it's a super hard metal!

Damascus steel knives, firearms, and other metal pieces are becoming more popular as craftsmen and rediscovering the art. As more Damascus knives pop up in the market, buyers and smiths new to the material want to know: is Damascus steel strong?  Not All Damascus is Created Equal Damascus is made of multiple metals which are fused together to create a single piece. The contrast between steel types creates those distinctive patterns, especially when etched and oiled.  Like pretty much every other metal product on the market, the strength of Damascus steel is directly related to its quality. Great Damascus is made from high quality materials, and the forging process is meticulous to ensure that there are no voids, cracks, or risk of delamination while you’re working with the metal.  It’s a common misconception that when you work with Damascus, the risk of delamination – the layers coming apart – is just something you have to deal with.

Sharpened using the same techniques as those used to make Samurai swords, Damascus knives undergo a process of lamination where the super-hard carbon steel core is layered with 67 coatings of stainless steel for a distinctive blade that is strong yet flexible with a superior cutting edge.
